FROM DR. TEWKSBURY .... 



Re-Evaluation Time 



Lasell Junior College was initially accredited by the New England Association 
of Colleges in 1938. Once every decade a member institution is re-evaluated to 
determine whether or not it is worthy of continued recognition. 

What does "accreditation" signify? The parent organization says that "it con- 
stitutes public acknowledgment that a member institution has been carefully evaluated, 
found to share certain basic educational policies and practices with other member 
institutions, and approved by the Association as an institution of higher education." 

In the case of Lasell, re-evaluation involved the institution's being visited for 
two days (and one evening) by a three-member team of educators from other colleges. 
They, in due course, filed a report of their findings with the Association for action. 

In preparing for the committee's visit to the campus, a college is required to 
prepare detailed answers to a questionnaire. Lasell has, in odd moments, been busy 
with this undertaking for over a year. The replies submitted are checked by the 
visitors, on the scene, to see if the institution is fulfilling its stated objectives. 

We are happy to report that Lasell was unanimously voted continued accreditation 
at the Association meeting of December 7, 1962, in Boston. 

A committee which visits a college is also charged with the responsibility of 
making recommendations which will assist the institution in its continuing efforts 
at self-improvement. In this connection, specific suggestions were made for library- 
enlargement in all areas and expansion of health center activities in the years to come. 

The committee complimented Lasell on the "healthy morale among faculty and 
students," a well arranged study program and the sound preparation available for 
students who do "superior work" when they go on to senior institutions. Committee 
members were impressed with the "quality and enthusiasm" of student leadership 
and the "harmonious interchange between students and faculty and students and 
administration. 

The committee quite correctly closed its report by observing that a surplus in 
current funds would probably be expended on the new classroom building whose 
construction had just been authorized. 

It is true, of course, that the re-evaluation report was written by a particular 
committee of the New England Association. It might have differed in some respects 
if written by another group. However, this is about as close as an institution comes 
to receiving an objective judgment rendered by its peers. Certainly we shall not 
rest on our laurels, but it is gratifying to have what we consider to be the intrinsic 
worth of our alma mater thus publicly recognized. In some measure, all identified 
with Lasell, past or present, share in the commendation.

THE ART DEPARTMENT REPORTS .... 

by Jacquelin Saunders, Chairman 

Last April The Art Department was invited to speak to members of Lasell's Annual 
Alumnae Council regarding current phases of art activity at the College. This was a 
welcome invitation, for it offered an enjoyable opportunity to wave the banner for 
Art, holding as we do deep convictions regarding its importance. 

An attempt to familiarize the Council delegates with our activities began with 
a description of one of the major projects undertaken by the Art Department in 1962 
— the formation of the College Student Art Collection. This will comprise out- 
standing works completed by Lasell students. The works will be considered on ex- 
tended loan to the College and will be on exhibit throughout the campus. The collec- 
tion will grow with the selection of additional pieces each year, and a rotating exhibit 
and change of display will take place annually. 

The initial selection was made in June 1961, twenty student projects were 
framed and hung in the Woodland dining room and East Lounge, and in Bragdon's 
main hall and reception rooms. Included in the group were watercolor and tempera 
paintings, pencil and pastel drawings, and block prints. Frames for the pictures 
were made in the college carpentry shop. Inspiration for this project was given by 
Dr. Tewksbury, who suggested the need for paintings in prominent campus locations. 
He offered this opportunity for student work to be displayed, and paintings and draw- 
ings will be placed wherever there is a request for them, — in dormitories and college 
offices. 

A parallel activity is the annual purchase by the Art Department of museum 
reproductions of paintings which, eventually, it is hoped, will become available to 
students on a rental basis for their dormitory rooms. At present there are on display 
ten reproductions purchases from the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and from the New 
York Museum of Modern Art. These pictures have been dry-mounted professionally, 
on heavy board, and protected by a spray of plastic coating. Cezanne's Pines and 
Rocks and Turn in the Road, Redon's Floivers, Seurat's Fishing Fleet, and Buffet's 
The City are a few of the selections. It is hoped that there will be an opportunity to 
invest in the purchase of original contemporary prints and paintings in the near future. 

The purpose of the collection of student art is two-fold: first, to offer enjoyment 
to the entire College through the creative imagination, the color, design and techniques 
shown in the paintings; secondly, to provide recognition of student accomplishment 
evidenced in works of significant artistic quality. 

Another major phase of the Art Department's activities has been a series of 
exhibits of student work in the Carter Hall exhibition area. In 1959 we were for- 
tunate in obtaining Carter Hall for this purpose, and in being able to design the 
location and color of bulletin board backgrounds for display. Since that time we 
have added hanging frames, covered with colored burlap, in order to make further 
use of the space of the hall. New furniture has added to the attractiveness of the area. 
Since I960 we have featured a continual display of changing exhibits throughout the 
school year. The first exhibit of the 1961-62 season consisted of the first selections for 
the college student art collection, together with the museum reproductions of paint- 
ings. This was followed by an exhibit of the first art work of all classes. Several 
showings were held of work accomplished in the art major courses — Advertising 
Design, Fashion Illustration and Interior Design. During Father-Daughter Weekend 
senior students exhibited oil paintings, watercolors and drawings. Later in the spring 
Crafts work was displayed — ceramics, weaving, jewelry and block-printed textiles. 



LASELL LEAVES 



In May there was an exhibit of Faculty art work, as well as the Annual Freshman 
Art Exhibit. The Annual Senior Art Exhibit was reserved for Commencement Week. 

Exhibits have proven of value to art classes for purposes of evaluation of work 
accomplished and they have been a source of encouragement to art students. Girls 
not enrolled in the art curriculum have expressed much interest in the exhibits, and 
this carries out one of the original purposes of the program — to welcome the 
interest in Art of all students. Another purpose of our endeavor is to provide a 
stimulating center and focal point for College visitors and guests. 

At present there are four instructors in the Art Department: Mrs. Elizabeth 
Iarrobino, Miss Amelia Terrazano, Mr. Donald Warren and Miss Jacquelin Saunders, 
Chairman. Twelve separate courses are,. offered in the Art Curriculum; Color, Line 
and Design is available to Retailing students, and Art for Childhood Education is 
a part of the Child Study program. Three majors within the art curriculum are Ad- 
vertising Design, Fashion Illustration and Interior Design, one of which a student 
elects during her second year of study. 

September 1962 begins the second year of a revised curriculum. Changes offered 
the opportunity to extend the study of the History of Art to two years, to extend 
the work in Crafts to a full year, to extend Figure Drawing courses to cover one and 
a half years, and to place the course of specialization mentioned above in the second 
year. In addition, art students now have the opportunity to elect a greater number 
of courses in Liberal Arts. Basically, these revisions provide a course of art study 
that is strong in the Liberal Arts tradition, but also includes an introduction to 
specialized vocational training. 

One of the major objectives of Lasell's Art Department is "to develop the 
student's understanding of the theory and practice of successful visual expression, 
either for personal or professional use." In the future, the Department plans to rent 
traveling exhibits and to invite Alumnae as well as local artists to participate in the 
program. 

The Art faculty hopes to announce, in June 1963, the first recipient of the 
Annual Purchase Prize in Art. This prize will be awarded to a student for an art 
work of considered excellence, and this drawing or painting will become a permanent 
part of the College Student Art Collection.

CLASS NEWS . . 




Dr. Tewksbury with 1902's Reunioners: 

Georgie Duncan Seavey, Bessie Fuller 

Perry and Cora Stone Trimmer. 



1887 - 1907 

Commencement greetings were received 
from Lasell's oldest graduate, Mercy Sinsa- 
baugh Ingalls '87, and from Nelly Feagles 
Kattelle, Edith Howe Kip, and Grace Wash- 
burn Hoskins of the Class of 1897. 

Georgie Duncan Seavey, Bessie Fuller Per- 
ry and Cora Stone Trimmer, celebrating 
their 60th Reunion, were luncheon guests at 
the home of Dr. and Mrs. Tewksbury. Re- 
grets were sent by the following 1902-ers: 
Mary Buffinton Chace, Grace Bullock 
Gorham, Ellen Chase Wood, Laura Chase, 
Hattie McGregor and Alida Walter John- 
son. 

Notes from members of the Class of 1907 
include: 

Elizabeth Peirce Bittenbender: "A niece 
is being married that day, so it will be im- 
possible to accept the kind invitation to 
luncheon. My sister, Mildred Peirce Wise 
'06, had a delightful time with you both 
last year. My two years at Lasell will always 
be remembered with pleasure and the friends 
made there will always be treasured." 

Daisy Gilbert Buck: "Do hope Cornelia 
Eaton Sutton and I will be able to join you 
on June 9, 1962." 

Fern Dixon Leahy: "Regret that I will not 
be able to accept your kind invitation to 
luncheon on June the ninth. My thoughts 



and good wishes will be with you on that 
happy day." 

Carre Fuller Eldridge: "It is most kind 
to invite the members of the Class of 1907 
to the President's Home for luncheon on 
Alumnae Day. I am a member 'by courtesy' 

— I was a 'special' student at the Seminary 

— or what Dr. Bragdon called 'an unfinished 
product'. Very best wishes to all." 

Lilian Douglass Heeb: "Regret I cannot 
be in Auburndale in June — I shall be on 
a trip to Canada and the Seattle Fair. With 
much pleasure I remember the delightful 
tea with Mrs. Tewksbury at your home last 
fall. It is always gratifying to hear of 
Lasell's growth." 

Carrie Sessions Dodge : "Regret very much 
that I am unable to accept the luncheon in- 
vitation. Mr. Dodge and I are joining friends 
at White Sulphur at that very time. Do wish 
I could manage at some future date to visit 
Lasell. Know I would find all the improve- 
ments most interesting and exciting. Very 
best good wishes to all." 

Helen Carter Johnson: "Regret I am so 
far away from Lasell and seldom have an 
opportunity to revisit the College. Am look- 
ing forward to a July visit with my former 
roommate, Florence Stark Hoyt x-'08. Best 
wishes always to Lasell." 

Etta Handy was enjoying a European tour 
at Reunion time.

1912 

Mrs. J. Tracy Colby 

(Clara Parker), Secretary 
8 High Street, Goffstown, New Hampshire 

Twelve members of the Class of 1912 and 
one Special, Grace Douglass Schindler, met 
for our successful 50th Reunion on June 
9th. It was a perfect June day in Auburn- 
dale, and we were luncheon guests at the 
home of President and Mrs. Blake Tewks- 
bury. 

Here are a few of the notes written to 
you who were not able to join us: 

Dear Girls, It seemed like old times to 
see so many of our class at our Fiftieth Re- 
union, but we missed the ones who could 
not come. I am looking forward to meeting 
you at our 75th. Love to all, 

Dorothea Africa 

Dear 1912, It's just like old times and 
everybody looks the same only wiser and 
more mature. Here's hoping we are all here 
for the 75th. Love to you all, 

Ruth Bachelder Luscombe 

Dear "Girls" of 1912, We are having a 
really wonderful reunion, the only thing to 
make it better would be to have the absent 
ones here. However we have enjoyed hav- 
ing the many nice letters from those of you 
who couldn't come. Lasell is lovely as usual 
and this is a perfect Commencement week- 
end. Best to all. Ruth Coulter Bierer 

Dear Girls, We're having just the best, 

happy time and have missed those of you 

who could not come. See you in five years. 

Miriam Flynn Speth 

Dear Girls, Here we are sitting in Dr. 
Tewksbury's delightful home having our 
little meeting. We all are fine, no wheel- 
chairs in sight. We do miss you all and 
hope we can all get here for our 75th. 
Bunny Lincoln Biers 

(Bunny had just returned from a trip to 
Spain and Portugal.) 

Dear Girls, We missed you all and you 
all missed a fine luncheon. Marjorie and 
Jane are staying with me and renewing old 
times, don't really feel as old as we are. 
Good luck and love to you, 

Rosalthe Williams Picard 

Ten letters and notes from 1912 and fine 
answers from Specials. 

Agnes Adelsdorf Weil writes that she is 
very sorry she can't be with us as her hus- 
band is very ill. She has lived in New 
York City for thirty three years after living 
in California. She says, "All this time I 
have kept up singing, inspired originally 
by our Miss Goodrich at Lasell. About 
fourteen years ago I started singing in hos- 
pitals, giving programs in the wards — fi- 
nally concentrated on Bellevue Hospital 
where adult patients had no recreation of 



any kind." She is Chairman of Medical and 
Surgical Recreation. Her daughter Agnes, 
her husband and four children live in Green- 
wich, Conn., but are moving to Washing- 
ton, D.C. She says, "I have had many trag- 
edies in my life, the loss of my first hus- 
band, my son at the age of 23 — but can 
still feel the joy of life — and believe that 
the years at Lasell made me self reliant and 
eager to pursue interests outside myself." 
My love to you all. Ever, Agnes. 

r Emily Butterworth Pritchard and her hus- 
band live in Clearwater, Florida, enjoy it 
very much, have an apartment overlooking 
Clearwater Bay. She says, "A great tragedy 
entered our lives a year ago. We lost our 
younger boy. Many of you have had sim- 
ilar sorrows and know what it means. He 
left three lovely children and we are de- 
voted not only to them but to his little wid- 
ow, who is carrying on very bravely. They 
live in Columbus, Ohio. My love and very 
best wishes to all of you and if ever anyone 
of you comes to this neck of the woods do 
look me up." 

Hi Everybody, Am sorry that you all 
couldn't have been with us at Lasell. 
We've had a very nice reunion and the 
Tewksburys were most hospitable to us 
old "girls." It was good to have news from 
so many of you who couldn't come but 
wish there had been more letters. If any of 
you are in Philadelphia, please let me 
know. My telephone number is Chestnut 
Hill 7-4878. Best to each of you. 

Annie Merrill David 

Dear "Girls", I am in Florida from De- 
cember 1st until the first of May at 1301 
N. Fenell St., Plant City, Florida. 

Ethel Moore Richardson 

Dear Girls of 1912, We have had a won- 
derful day for our reunion, a delicious 
lunch at Dr. and Mrs. Tewksbury's. It was 
such fun to see those who were here and en- 
joyed hearing from those who could not 
come. Emily, I hope we can get together in 
Florida. I have a friend in Clearwater; 
when I visit her I'll look you up. It's a 
pretty nice place to live, isn't it? Marjorie 
and I are staying with Rosalthe, will stop to 
see Marjorie on the way home. Hope we 
can get together in another five years. Love, 
Jane Parsons Westervelt 

Dear Everyone of our 1912 Class, How 
we wish you were with us to renew that 
glorious day, Monday, June 11, 1912, when 
tears flowed so freely — remember? One 
interesting thing today was to see the Class 
of 1902 who ate lunch with us. They 
looked younger than we do ! The President 
of the Alumnae urged us to be here for 
our 75th. Keep well — all good wishes to 
each and everyone. Lovingly, 

Marjorie Risser Blackwell

Luncheon Guests at the home of Dr. and Mrs. Tewksbury — Delegates from 
the Classes of 1902 and 1912. The 50th Reunion group includes: Marjorie Risser 
Blackwell, Rosalthe Williams Picard, Clara Parker Colby, Ruth Coulter Bierer, 
Ethel Moore Richardson, Jane Parsons Westervelt, Bernice Lincoln Beers, Mary 
Starr Utter Maxson, Annie Merrill David, Ruth Bachelder Luscombe, Miriam 
Flynn Speth, Dorothea Africa and Grace Douglass Schindler. 



Hi, all of you who could not meet with 
us today. We have had such a wonderful 
reunion and delightful luncheon with Dr. 
and Mrs. Tewksbury at their home. And we 
look pretty young too. Love and best wishes 
to you all. Clippy — there are three others 
who use canes. Pretty good? 

Mary Starr Utter Maxson 

Elizabeth Edson writes "Since I have the 
dubious distinction of being the only un- 
married member of the Class of 1912 (not 
so, Elizabeth) I do not have an immediate 
family to report on. I do have a cousin, 
Peter Edson. a newspaper columnist in 
Washington. He has a charming wife and 
two dear little girls who are a joy to me 
and in whom I take a real grandmotherly 
interest." Elizabeth took a two-year secre- 
tarial course at Columbia University but 
did not work until 1925. Then for 10 
years she was in the office of John D. Rock- 
efeller, Jr., followed by six years in Wil- 
liamsburg. In 19-13 she went to Washington 
where she has been ever since, worked in 
the State Department in the section dealing 
with Latin American affairs. She retired 
about four years ago, but is still busy three 
days a week in the library of a Veteran's 
Hospital, one day a week in another hospi- 
tal, taking a course in French conversation 
and active in the Unitarian Church's many 



activities. She has kept in touch with Char- 
lotte Lesh Coats, visited Charlotte and her 
husband Roy in Indianapolis last year and 
the year before and had a good visit this 
spring with Charlotte and her sister Helen 
when they went through Washington. 

May Goodwillie Townsend was sorry not 
to be able to come to Lasell. She says, "Our 
daughter lives in New Jersey but we man- 
age to visit them two or three times during 
the year which is lots of fun. The seven 
grandchildren are growing up fast — two 
are already at the college age. My love to 
all the 'girls'. I would love to have been 
with them today. It has been so many years 
since I have seen any one of our class." 

Mildred Hall Leber was not well and 
could not come to the reunion. I saw her 
and her husband, Dr. Leber, in Florida this 
past winter and she was very well and 
looked just fine. (CPC) 

Orra Hammond Pomeroy wrote that she 
could not come to our 50th reunion. 

Florence Jones Allen writes "I am very 
sorry that I cannot be at Lasell with you to 
enjoy seeing each one of you amid the old 
surroundings I loved so much in the very 
happy days at school." Her daughter, Nan- 
cy, who married Mary Starr's son, Max, 
live in Charlotte, North Carolina. They 
have three children, Kathryn (another

Jonesy) Billy, and Nancy. Their son Tom, 
with his wife and two children — Nancy and 
Bobby, live in Hinsdale. Florence and her 
husband went to Winter Park, Florida, but 
came back to Birmingham, Michigan, where 
they bought a smaller house. Address, 2348 
Northlawn Drive. 

Marion Joslin Oppenheimer says "Would 
so love to see all you girls again at Lasell 
and Boston, but as you know it is impos- 
sible for me to travel alone." We saw them 
at Long Boat Key, Clippy looked wonderful, 
but had to use a cane. She says, "Will had 
his pocket picked as we boarded the plane 
coming home. The next week wallet, driv- 
er's license, etc. were returned by mail from 
Tampa — all intact except $80.00 cash. 
Honor among thieves!!" 

Charlotte Lesh Coats writes "Since I can't 
be with you here is a word picture — I'm 
plumper by several pounds, grayer, tho' not 
white yet, not very agile, wrinkled round 
face. Anyway I'm happy and busy and en- 
joying life. Have just returned from a trip 
to Pennsylvania and Washington, D.C., 
coming home by way of Williamsburg. 
Elizabeth Edson went to Williamsburg with 
us so we had a good visit. She is very well 
and good fun to be with. Our only child 
lives south of Los Angeles. She has a 
daughter and two sons. I used to think I 
worked very hard, but I'm exhausted when 
I hear what she does each day. There 
never seems to be enough hours in the day 
to do all the things I want to do. Now if 
you want to know anything more about 
me you'll have to come to 7210 Washing- 
ton Boulevard, Indianapolis, to find out." 

Elinor Ryan Hixenbaugh writes "It has 
been so long since I was in touch with any 
of you. I suppose I should give a brief 
biography. To go back fifty years, I mar- 
ried a student from the University of Ne- 
braska whom I met on the Ford Peace ship. 
We used to joke that our children were the 
only tangible results of that Expedition. We 
have two sons, the older one lives near us 
at Melbourne Beach and has two sons ■ — 
one entering the University of Florida this 
fall. The other son lives in Pittsburgh and 
has two girls and two sons. They get down 
to see us about every year." After Elinor 
and her husband retired in 1959 they took 
a six months trip to Europe, then came to 
Florida. They moved in January I960 "when 
like a bolt out of the blue came my stroke, 
paralyzing my right side." She has recov- 
ered sufficiently so that she can do most 
things around the house with the help of a 
cane. They feel they have a delightful life, 
only three miles from Cape Canaveral 
where so many interesting people live and 
so many things are going on. 



Clara Trowbridge says "I regret ex- 
ceedingly that I will not be able to attend 
the reunion. I had looked forward to it 
during the year, but I have an invitation to 
go with three other friends to the West 
Coast. We are planning to be gone from 
Memorial Day until July. Give my best to 
everyone. May the years deal kindly with 
you and give you all happiness and content- 
ment." 

Barbara Clark Colby states "I am so in- 
volved with the World's Fair here in Seat- 
tle I ,will not be able to attend the 50th 
reunion." 

Grace Douglass Schindler attended the 
50th reunion and we were all glad to see 
her. 

Hazel Drew Adair could not attend. 

Frances May Holdman says, "I do hope 
that each and everyone will have a won- 
derful time." 

Sara E. Shuttleworth Howert writes "I 
hope the reunion is a great success. Sorry 
I cannot attend." 

Pearl Townsend spent four years in 
Teachers College, Columbia University, 
graduating in 1916. For eight years she 
taught Home Economics in Normal School, 
public school and college, three wonderful 
years at Tift College, Forsyth, Georgia. 
She then came home but has been very busy 
and happy working with many organiza- 
tions. She wishes she were nearer Mary 
and her brother and their children and 
grandchildren. "To those who do not know 
where Greenwich, New York, is we are 
about forty miles north of Albany and sev- 
enteen miles east of Saratoga Springs. A 
welcome is out to any of you who may drive 
this way. Best wishes for a successful and 
happy Reunion."

Mrs. H. B. Collins 

( Nell Woodward ) , Secretary 
39 Lincoln Street, Manchester, Mass. 

News gleaned from the Class Letter re- 
ceived in August 1962: 

Ida Laubenstein Moyer's husband wrote 
the glad news that Ida is much better this 
year than last, for which we all are most 
thankful. 

Martha Schumann Laubenstein is busy 
as ever with her large family. 

Katherine Bingaman Heron enclosed a 
picture of her lovely new daughter-in-law 
so we know she is to be congratulated. 
Katherine and her sister, Mary Hannah 
(Bingaman '14) are busy with trips and al- 
ways seem to find many old Lasell friends 
wherever they go. Florida seems to be a 
Mecca for Lasell girls!

Elizabeth Beach Bierer, in her letter, 
planned upon a trip to Spain and we won-

ence. Next letter will tell. 

Ada Patterson, we are sorry to say, is 
housed pretty much with arthritis, a weak 
heart, and diabetes; but the good sport that 
she is, she writes that she still enjoys all 
the many trips she took in the past. How 
fortunate she is to have such memories ! 

Bess Emerine sent a fine picture of her-

Catherine Carter Rasbach wrote a won- 
derfully interesting letter describing a re-

Ethel Murray Kuykendall and her hus-

living, taking each day as it comes. They 
are a fine example to follow! 

Irene Apfelbaum Livingstone's daughter-

care of a relative. 

Sara Lane Wilton, x-'15, is happy as ever 
in her little Rockport home. Sara and her 
husband are joining Harry and me at a pic- 
nic, and we wish more might be with us. 

Madeline Farmer Ryder, x-'15, repre- 
sented our class at the Tenth Birthday of 
the Lasell Alumnae Fund held at Lasell on 
April 6th and 7th. Madeline is a loyal La- 
sell daughter if ever there was one ! 

Nell Woodward Collins and husband 
Harry are just the same. They have not ac- 
complished anything unusual themselves 
but are basking in the glory of their son's 
and granddaughter's near mastery of Mt. 
Fuji in Japan. They were within 2000 feet 
of the summit when the lack of oxygen 
forced them to quit. But that's the time 
to use common sense and we are relieved 
they used it! 

1917 

Mrs. H. M. Brennan 

(Jessie Shepherd), Secretary 

160 E. 48th Street, New York, N.Y. 

Jess Shepherd Brennan reports a fine No- 
vember visit — "luncheon and gab-fest" ■ — 
with Helen Saunders. The Brennans will 
spend the holidays in New Hampshire, and 
she sends "Best good wishes to one and 
all." 

And of the New York visit Helen Saun- 
ders reports: "Also saw Nora Haywood 
Rodd, and was sorry to have missed — by 
only a few days — Julia Lipps, who was in 
Virginia. It was fun catching up on the 
news — and the good old Lasell spirit 
ran high." 

For the benefit of 1917-ers, who may have 
missed the September issue of the Leaves, 
we repeat the notes from Marjorie Morrison 
Coburn, who kindly took care of reunion 
mailing and questionnaires: 

Wilda Berkey Cartland x-'l6: Just 
couldn't make it — would like to hear from 
our Class — 25 Charlestown Street, Clare- 
mont, N. H. Greetings to all who remem- 
ber her. 

Florence Bell Merrill: Recovering from 
hospital visit. Active in outside and family 
affairs. 

Mid Strain Nutter: Fractured pelvic bone 
April 19th. Invited all to the annual pic- 
nic at her summer home in Pocasset on 
August 14.

LASELL LEAVES 




Commencement Luncheon — 1962 

Ruth Burnap Jones: Just returned from 
trip to Virginia, Washington, D. C, Mon- 
ticello and New York City. Ruth's hus- 
band's reunion plans coincided with ours. 

Dorothy Redmond Jones had just re- 
turned from Pennsylvania, New York and 
Massachusetts. Sent greetings to all. 

Gertrude Allen: New address: 825 Coral 
Way, Coral Gables, Florida. Has been op- 
erating a guest house on the Cape, but 
leaves June 20th for Florida. 

Alice Jenks Nickerson: Away the week- 
end of Commencement. Her husband now 
retired. 

Lenette Rogers Atkinson: Hopes to make 
the 50th. 

Eugenia Skinner Shorrock: Arrived in 
time for luncheon and Crowning of Queen, 
then returned to Alton Bay where she is for 
the summer. She operates a general store, 
real estate office, is a Justice of Peace, and 
owns a wild animal farm. 

Helen Lesh Zerfas: Recently returned 
from a trip with her sister and husband 
to Washington, D.C., Williamsburg and 
through Virginia. Asked especially for the 
whereabouts of Lillian Laffey Scott. 

Fannie Gates Frey: Sorry not to come — 
she and Max were leaving by plane for 
Seattle World's Fair. 

Helen Stephen Sterley: 189 North Man- 
or Avenue, Kingston, New York. Sorry 
not to make reunion. Reported a phone 
call from Edith Holman Dolliver x-'17. 
Edith's address is 2544 East Third Street, 
Long Beach 14, California. Saw Jess (Shep- 
herd Brennan) in New York and visited 
over luncheon table a few years ago. 

Marjorie Morrison Coburn: Lives at 79 
Lloyd Avenue, Providence, Rhode Island, 
since the passing of my husband in '59. 
Spend summers in Lake Forest, Illinois. 
Thanks to all for answering my notes. 



1922 

Mrs. George S. Harris 

(Marjorie Lovering), Secretary 

3 Lovering Road, West Medford, Mass! 

Mrs. A. B. Shoemaker 

(Phyllis Rafferty), Assistant 

315 San Juan Road, Watsonville, Calif. 

I was never so proud of the Class of 1922 
as on Alumnae Day when I announced our 
Reunion* Gift to the 1962-63 Alumnae 
Fund of $552.50 from 24 contributors. 

A note of thanks has come from "Mac" — 
and I am convinced we do not look our 
years for she refers to our 35th Reunion. 
At times I'm sure we didn't act our years 
during That Day — the best reunion we've 
ever had. We only know that those of 
you who so sincerely wanted to be with 
us were greatly missed. We had replies 
from 33 of our remaining 61 members. '22 
always was and always will be GREAT. 

News from those who returned: 

Carolyn Badger Seybolt: She is a most 
gracious person. A daughter and two 
grandsons agree with her. 

Iverna Birdsall Lutze came with her hus- 
band — most co-operative as our only 
"photographer," and a most willing chauf- 
feur. 

Dorothy Caldwell Jordan: Her two sons 
and a daughter bring seven active grand- 
children to the house. She has decided 
not to take a position at Northeastern Uni- 
versity — just relax a bit. 

Harriette Case Bidwell: Running around 
in circles is Casey's forte. Her youngest, 
Jane, was to be married on July 7th; her 
other daughters, Sarah and Charlotte, have 
a compliment of four children so one can't 
grow old that-a-way. Casey took over the 
arrangement of our class insignia — white 
roses with '22 green labels. 

Violet Comley Peirce: We were glad Vi 
could make the luncheon. A family of 
two boys, a girl and an engagement party 
kept her away from the evening affairs. 

Sarah F. Crane: It is always so nice of 
Sarah to come from Vermont. She is the 
same quiet-spoken Sarah. 

Florence Day Wentworth: Whatever 
would Reunion be without Flossie! Her 
plea to Phyllis to "please eat a bit of 
lunch, dear" brought forth a "can't because 
I'd rather talk"; the use of her gay flow- 
ered hat as a centerpiece at our most suc- 
cessful dinner party at The Simpson House; 
and her statement that she could "see a fly 
ten miles away without glasses" just 
brought one laugh after another. 

Grace Gates Brown: Two daughters and 
a son — and you didn't mention grand- 
children, or did you?

From 1922 



Marjorie Gifford Grimm: Yes, George 
was there, and enjoyed Reunion as much 
as the rest of us. And how proud they are 
of Nancy and their doctor-son, Gifford. 

Josephine Holbrook Metzger: Now 
there's a loyal Lasell girl. She was among 
the first to be with Phyllis when she ar- 
rived on the East Coast to make final the 
end of a long journey for "Medico." 
Daughter Lynn (Metzger Pharo '45) has two 
darling children. 

Eleanor Knight Bowering: Because of her 
continuing profession as an organist, she 
couldn't make the luncheon. Arrived in 
time for dinner and it was good to have 
her join the party. 

Marjorie Lovering Harris: Proud of Ann 
(Harris Hughes '55) and two grandsons in 
nearby Bedford, and son, Dean. Most 
grateful for the kind hospitality of Toni 
(Meritt '23) and Wilder Smith for their 
"open house," and sending sincere thanks 
to all who helped make our 40th a huge 
success; to husband and Dad for tolerat- 
ing phone calls, letter-wiring, and the pile 
of data assembled on the dinner table; and 
to Ann — an extra thank-you for decipher- 
ing and typing this report. 

Elizabeth Madeira Campbell: We couldn't 
ever get along without her droll humor. 



When she appeared at Plummer, sporting 
dark glasses, a call from Casey to "take off 
those glasses," brought a return of "can't, 
they're hiding the bags under my eyes." She 
and Laurence are ever travelling. 

Phyllis Rafferty Shoemaker: Last, but 
certainly far from least. A wonderful 
trip East — arrived in New Jersey on May 
6th — on to Boston for the Trustees' 
Meeting and Pops; and then, try to find 
her for the next two weeks — here and 
there in Maine, Cape Cod and all of Great- 
er Boston. I'm sure when "Mac" McClel- 
land called to the parading reunioners: 
"we'll go this way — it will be easier 
for you," and Phyllis answered, "we're 
lucky we can walk," she was referring to 
the mileage covered in the New England 
states. She was awarded "the most distant 
travelling" prize — a book of Colonial 
Boston by Marjorie Rhoades Ross, whom 
we wished might have presented the gift 
in person. My thanks to Phyllis for her 
share of letter-writing, and for her 
thoughtfulness in sending the delicate lei 
direct from Hawaii. 

And — now — the news of classmates 
who couldn't make Reunion: 

Frances Angel Levenson: Had accepted 
and at the last moment family plans made 



22 



LASELL LEAVES 



it impossible to attend. She caught up on 
Lasell news, when she attended the wed- 
ding of Miriam Chollett Bershon's son. 
Frances and her husband travel on business 
to Tokyo, Amsterdam and many European 
cities. 

Vera Clauer Hans: Every day is a busy 
one for Vera, but she promises to be on 
hand for our 45th. 

Ethelle Cleale Collett: Close ties at Lasell 
with Nancy Collett Hendricks '47 and Linda 
'60, now attending the University of Maine. 
A threesome of Colletts for Lasell. 

Miriam Dailey Taylor: Three daughters 
and seven grandchildren, plus a host of 
committee activities give her a fine out- 
look. She says, "I don't mind growing old 
as long as I keep my health — but 40 years 
out of Lasell — WOW!" 

Naomi Davis Jones: Telephoned Jo Hol- 
brook Metzger and sent love and a sincere 
wish she might have come. 

Virginia Emmott Orr: A trip to Ohio 
cancelled Reunion plans. 

Jean Field Faires: Now why did you have 
to visit the hospital on June 9th? Phyllis 
stopped to visit en route home, so we know 
you had a detailed report. We missed you, 
Jean. 

Helene Grashorn Dickson: We were so 
sure rain, hail or snow wouldn't keep you 
from Reunion. It was not the 6V^ grand- 
children; business is business. 

Cecile Loomis Stuebing: Has not been 
back since 1923. Daughter, Sally, has two 
little daughers; son, Ted, recently married 
most happily to a "tailor-made" family. 
We'll have to talk Marge Loomis Colling- 
wood '21 and Sis into returning in '67. 

Edrie Mahaney Rathburn: So sorry your 
plans didn't work out. Better luck next 
time. 

Marjorie Norris England x-'22; And Sau- 
gus is so nearby . . . we had high hopes. 

Mabel Rawlings Eckhardt: We too were 
disappointed that back kept your "driving 
foot" from the go pedal. 

Margaret Reid Perry: We were sorry 
other plans kept Peg in New York, but we 
were grateful for the wonderful picture of 
her and Nels. Golf, hospital work and trav- 
elling certainly agree with Peg. 

Thelma Schweitzer White: Thelma gets 
the prize — eight grandchildren. Son, 
George, plans to take over the drug store 
for "Serge." 

Barbara Smith Huntington: No one tried 
harder to arrange a trip to Auburndale 
than Babs, but loyal daughter that she is 
to our good friend, Mrs. Smith Corbin, it 
wasn't a wise move. Babs continues to 
teach voice and music, and in addition 
keeps busy as "cook, laundress, gardener, 
chauffeur and what-have-you." 



Edna Starrett Mathewson : A July trip 
to Boston cancelled Lasell plans. I hope to 
contact Edna when she is visiting her 
daughter. 

Dorothy Smith Stefanides: Busy with a 
family of three — "all four-legged." 

Louise Stevens Prince: It is heartbreak- 
ing indeed to write sad news in a Reunion 
report. Our deepest sympathy to Louise, 
to her mother, Mrs. William Stevens, to 
Janet White MacLure '49 and to Marilyn 
Prince Karcher x-'49. Louise's sister, Mari- 
on Stevens White Webber '21 and her 
husband, Dr. Samuel R. Webber, were 
drowned in a boating accident near Calais, 
Maine on May 30, 1962. 

Elizabeth Tarr Benton: Can't blame her 
for not turning down the trip to Italy, 
Switzerland, Germany, Holland and Eng- 
land. 

Theresa Thompson Osborne: To know 
that Don is an excellent believer in follow- 
ing doctor's orders, and to learn that you 
have been appointed a Trustee of the 
College is wonderful news. And it was a 
"heart-warming and jolly get-together." 

Marie Washburn Higgins: Well, now . . . 
how about having an obstetrician in the 
family and having sister come home to be 
under his care. I am sure you were needed 
at home, but we were sorry you were not 
able to attend the graduation from Lasell 
of your niece, Pamela Washburn '62. 

Mary Lou Weymouth Thompson: You 
and Theresa must get together five years 
from now — - make it one car from Belfast. 

Olive Whitehead Denker: Family mat- 
ters rightfully deserve priority. So sorry 
you were not with us. 

Lilian Wood (Pierce) Wood: The turn 
of events does work in various ways — now 
you are a "Wood" again. Do correct the 
lady who chastised you. We all can fully 
realize your busy days as executive sec- 
retary of the Wheaton College Alumnae 
Association. 

And in closing ... a most sincere thank 
you to all who so kindly contributed to 
the Alumnae Fund; and that includes our 
Honorary 1922-er, Helen Gresley, as gra- 
cious and as loyal as any Lasell graduate, 
and so much a part of our Reunions; and 
an extra thank you to one and all, who 
helped to make 1922's 40th Reunion a 
wondrously happy day. 

M.L.H.

1927 

Mrs. David Rosen 

( Rosalie Brightman ) , Secretary 

404 Beacon Street, Boston, Mass. 

The 35th Reunion of the Class of '27 was 
filled with a warmth and spirit that almost 
compensated for the lack in numbers. 
Attending were: Georgia Parrish Campbell 
'26, Esther Josselyn, Ruth Woodman Hig- 
ginbotham, Rosalie Brightman Rosen, Cath- 
erine Worrall Flint '28, Letty Krause Eyer, 
Rosanna McConnell Wallis, Nan Pagin 
Page, Betty Almy Lincoln. 

From Minnie Remick Dandison — a pic- 
ture and a note telling us that she and 
Basil had just returned from Europe for 
she was going "to take care of her grand- 
child while another one arrives in the 
world." "While taking care of my pre- 
cious grandson, another daughter arrives 
from California for the summer and my 
son, a Lieutenant in the Marine Corps, com- 
pletes his 3-year service and plans to go to 
graduate school." 

Eugenie McEdwards Bunting tells us 
that she has five grandchildren also that 
"Jeannie is still home with us and finishing 
her Junior year at high school. She was 
with us in Laos for 16 months — and in 
Bangkok for two after we were evacuated 
from Laos. Travelling to and from Asia, 
plus the experiences we had in Laos, were 
most enjoyable. Now I am having the 
pleasure of presenting programs on Laos 
to Women's Clubs throughout the State ■ — ■ 
I learned how to take pictures while there 
and got some very good colored slides of 
people and conditions in Southeast Asia. 
Our oldest son has his own law office and 
is the first legally trained magistrate in 
Cranbury. The other two boys live in the 
Chicago area." 

Madalyn Patten Hoberg tells us that 
her husband is still very active in the prac- 
tice of law but that they did get away for 
a Mediterranean cruise this spring. "My 
mother comes from Maine each fall to 
spend the winter and then returns East 
in the spring. Our daughter lives close by 
in San Francisco and has two children." 

Christine Oby Jones says: "although Can- 
ton is still our official home, we spend 
about three months a year in Ft. Lauder- 
dale where we have a house. We also have 
a boat which we are about to bring up the 
Intracoastal Waterway up the Hudson Riv- 
er and the Barge Level to Buffalo and 
then across Lake Erie to Cedar Point." 

In a letter to Rosie McConnell Wallis, 
we learned that Pauline LeClaire Reiter left 




Grandma Minnie Remick Dandison '27 
and Andrew 



in May for a trip to the Near East ■ — ■ 
Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Israel and 
Greece with a tour of the Greek Islands. 

At the luncheon it was announced that 
the Class of 1927 had made a generous con- 
tribution to the 1962-63 Alumnae Fund in 
memory of our good friend, the late Mari- 
esta Howland Bloom '26. After the lunch- 
eon and much talk, we wandered around 
to our various houses — Carpenter, Clark, 
and Gardner, comparing and reminiscing 
and reliving the all too-short days we had 
spent there. The Crowning of Lasell Queen, 
always a beauty (and this year no excep- 
tion ) , was followed by a lawn reception 
where Dr. and Mrs. Tewksbury welcomed 
and received in their specially cordial way. 

We held our Reunion dinner at the 
"Pillars" where we shared a charming room 
with reunioning 1932. With our own 
green and gold Class colors and flowers, 
we were festive, the dinner was delicious, 
and fun was had by all. 

On Sunday afternoon — all reunioning 
classmates were invited to my home for 
cocktails, where we continued to catch 
up on the doings in our lives and reminded 
each other of so many almost-forgotten 
incidents at Lasell. 

Thus ended our 35th. We all agreed 
that the years had been kind and that we 
were easily recognized. Let us hope that 5 
years from now we shall be as intact as a 
Class and that many more will return. 
There is more to tell about classmates, but 
I shall save that portion for the next issue 
of the Leaves.

And Who's Talking at the End of the Table? 



1932 

Mrs. H. R. Macy 
( Katharine Hartman ) , Secretary 
Cold Spring Harbor, New York 

Natalie E. Park, Assistant 
73 Goden Street, Belmont, Mass. 

Thanks to a "personal" contact at Lasell, 
The Class of 1932 were assigned The 
Alumnae Lounge (located on the second 
floor of Plummer) for Reunion Day. There 
we met — coffee-d - gabbed - and "lined 
up" for Luncheon. Attending were Edie 
Parsons Booth, Julia Case, Helane Jones 
Pressel, Thelma Macfarland Bates, Bib 
Page Sealey, Marge Tarbell Quandt, Elinor 
Small Domina, Louise Russell Heusen, 
Gertrude Hooper Ring, Gertrude Dupuis 
McGrath, Natalie Park, Katharine Hartman 
Macy. Carolyn Sproat Spigner was accom- 
panied by her daughter, Flora Spigner 
Collier x-'6l; Betty Parrish Newman came 
with her sister Georgia Parrish Campbell 
'26 and Ruth Kniep Blanchard's Father, 
Mr. T. C. Kniep braved the gabby crowd. 
The Pillar House in Newton Lower Falls 
was the scene of our joint dinner gathering 
with the Class of 1927. Fran Turner Sleigh, 



Muriel Morse Henrich, Marge MacClymon, 
and Betty Parrish'^ daughter, Patricia New- 
man x-'63 joined us there. 

The day was all too short — but a most 
happy one. We missed each and every ab- 
sent one — how about next time, please? 
News from the questionnaires: 
Helen Fitch. Foley: "And now I am a 
grandmother ! My eldest daughter, Connie 
(who lives in Syracuse, N.Y.) has two 
adorable boys — James Scott, age 2, and 
Thomas Philip, age 4. My oldest boy, Wil- 
liam — we call him "Bud," was married 
two years ago and is finishing his second 
year at the University of Maine — after 
spending 4 years in the Air Force as an 
instructor of Basic Radio — Radar and 
Electronics at Biloxi, Mississippi. Elizabeth 
— or "Libby" — is a second year student 
at Gorham State Teachers College. Judy is 
a Junior at Portland High School and hopes 
for a career in journalism. Paul is in the 
8th grade — Kathy is in the 6th grade, 
and Ricky is in the 2nd grade. With this 
family, and a nine-room house, you may 
see that I do not have much time for any- 
thing else! So sorry I cannot be with 
you and the other girls (and I do mean 



LASELL LEAVES 



25 



girls!) this year — will be looking forward 
to 1967!" 

Mildred J. Guyett: "My hobby is taking 
trips. I do enjoy travelling and seeing 
the country." 

Lou'se Russell Heuser x-'32: "My husband 
passed away suddenly April 23, 1962. I 
have been working for some time now as 
department manager for silverware, clocks, 
and watches in Gilchrist Company, Boston, 
Mass. Mary Louise, my daughter, is married 
and living in Scituate, Mass. William R. is 
with the Air Force in North Africa and 
David is stationed in Germany." 

Agnes Metcalf Connon: "May not get 
to the Reunion because my son may be 
home on leave at that time and, needless 
to say, I want to be with him. It would, 
however, be nice to see you all — really 
doesn't seem possible that thirty years have 
passed. I am still living in New Vernon, 
New Jersey and have one son presently at 
the Great Lakes Training Center. My main 
interest is still my music. For the past few 
years have been teaching piano (my last 
training being at Lasell). Now have about 
25 pupils so that keeps me busy every 
afternoon. In the summer, of course, I 
enjoy the garden. My days of P.T.A. have 
gone so I fill in the time with church 
work. I was pleased to have Babe's daugh- 
ter visit me recently. She is doing graduate 
work at Rutgers. I talked to Mr. Whitney 
on the phone not long ago. He is a really 
remarkable gentleman. If any '32ers live 
near by or are passing through I would 
be so happy to see you. Have fun at the 
Reunion and I will be thinking of you all." 

Gene Loomis Flagler: "Just back from a 
quick trip to Texas — my husband and I 
met at my sister's home, Cecile Loomis 
Stuebing '22. With my sister, Margaret 
Loomis Collingwood '21, we drove to 
Houston and had a reunion for Mother, 
who celebrated her 89th birthday in April. 
Sorry I can't be with you this time — my 
best to all and have a good Reunion." 

Thelma MacFarlane Bates reports that 
her daughter Barbara will be a member 
of Lasell's Class of '64. 

Janet McCartney Abel x'32: "Betsy Jane 
graduates from Lasell this year. William 
was graduated in 1961 from Franklin and 
Marshall College." 

Betty Clark Fryling: "Wayzata Country 
Club - — ■ a real golf whiz ! Pink Lady at 
Methodist Hospital. Bowling ■ — bridge — 
those long winters. Just finished Cancer 
Drive, Residential Chairman for Hopkins 
— whew! Would love to know the where- 
abouts of Peg Lovell Jackson." 

Ruth Kniep Blanchard x-'32: "Met my 
Lasell roommate Betty Clark Fryling in 
New York two years ago after she had 



moved from California. It was the first 
time I had seen her since 1942. Do wish 
Mary Lib McNulty McNair would make 
Reunion. We have been here since last 
August. Moved from Pennsylvania where 
we have lived since 1946. Hope to see you 
June 9th." 

Libby Page Sealey: "Girl Scout Work. 
Church Fair. Will make a fourth at bridge 
anytime. Only trips for us are to Canada to 
visit Neil and Mary who are attending 
schools in New Brunswick." 

Marjorie Tarbell Quandt: "Back in I960 
I remarried after being a widow for four 
years. My husband has a seventeen-year- 
old son who is with us and a Junior at 
Arlington High School. I am still a "career 
gal," now working as a bookkeeper with a 
local construction company. It is a little 
change after twenty-five years in banking. 
If I had time for a hobby, it would be 
photography but our home life occupies 
most of my spare time and is my prime 
interest. We have enjoyed two wonderful 
trips, one by car through Canada visiting 
the Gaspe, P.E.I, and Cape Breton; the 
other by air to California and Mexico. It 
is good to have a travelling companion 
after doing it so many years "solo." Elea- 
nor Ronimus Dawber is leaving May 8th 
for a business trip to Europe with her 
husband, who is a doctor with the U.S. 
Public Health Service." 

Enid Jackson Giles: "Extremely disap- 
pointed not to be able to get East in June 
for the doings . . . had really great hopes 
of making this 30th. An occasional week- 
end in New Jersey and New York is the 
best I can do from this distance. Recently 
stayed with Esther Gilbert in New York. 
Happily she is one of my daughter's god- 
mothers, and we keep in touch. Since mov- 
ing to the Cleveland area, have become ac- 
tive in the League of Women Voters, and 
the West Shore Concerts Women's Com- 
mittee which sponsors the Cleveland Sym- 
phony on this side of the city. Despite 
many cultural advantages, and a splendid 
school system, we still miss old friends and 
the more familiar surroundings of New 
York, and its environs. Expect another 
railroad merger will take us, it would ap- 
pear at the present time, to Roanoke, Vir- 
ginia. Say a big hello to everyone." 

Barbara Cowdrey Alexik: "Choir director 
Intermediate Choir Church. Member of 
the Senior Choir. Present Director of Li- 
brary and Historical Association. Secre- 
tary, Directors of Ambulance Fund. Sec- 
retary Fortnightly (Literary Club). Past 
President of Stillwater Improvement Soci- 
ety. Chairman of March of Dimes, Chair- 
man of Ambulance Fund Drive, Chairman

Mechanicville (all grades). Taught train- 
able children (50-25 IQ, brain injured and 
Mongoloids). Parttime librarian, work with 
ceramics, otherwise just a housewife!" 

Helane Jones Pressel: "I have two hob- 
bies — ■ trivets and glass. Over the years 
I've been coast to coast — in 49 of the 50 
states; most of the islands in the Caribbean, 
Panama, Venezuela, Hawaii, Wake Island, 
Japan and Hong Kong. The Far East is 
fascinating — plan a return trip in the Fall. 
My daughter has lived in Massachusetts, 
Florida, Nevada, and California since 
leaving Lasell. At present she is in Grosse 
Pointe, Michigan, with her two children, 
Karen Linwood, who will be five on May 
27th, and Theodore William, who was 
three on March 27th." 

Edith Parsons Booth: "Diane is entering 
the freshman class at Marietta College in 
Marietta, Ohio. She has been a cheer lead- 
er at the Concord Carlisle Regional High 
School for the past two years. This year 
she is Captain of the girls Softball team. 
Madelyn, whom we call Lyn, is a sopho- 
more in high school. She was in the fall 
play. Due to Diane's graduation, I will 
be unable to stay for dinner but will be 
present for luncheon." 

Frances Turner Sleigh: "Studying oil 
painting at Cambridge Adult Center. Ac- 
tive in Universalist Church. Active in 
bettering race relations Wellesley Fair 
Housing Practices Committee. Participa- 
tion in People to People programs. (Ex- 
periment of International Living), Home-

( Louise Tardivel ) , Secretary 
150 Hickory Road, Weston, Mass. 

The 25th Reunion of the Class of 1937 
was held at my home in Weston on a beau- 
tiful Saturday night. Cocktails and dinner 
were enjoyed by one and all — 56 to be 
exact. The idea of including "best boy- 
friends" proved a huge success. An added 
touch to the festivities was the surprise 
gift sent by Babe Beamer Dahlberg — 
orchids from Hawaii for everyone and silver 
dollars for The Alumnae Fund. Everyone 
was so pleased that a telephone call was 
made to Hawaii to thank her. She sounded 
just the same as ever. The other highlight 
of the evening was the showing of movies 
furnished by Bunnie Alves MacEwan. We 
were delighted to receive a telegram from 
Class Advisor "Miss Eliasson" (Karin Eli- 
asson Monroe '31). We were happy to 
know her "Hank" has been promoted to 
the rank of Admiral and is now serving as 
Assistant Chief of Naval Operations (Na- 
val Reserve). Without further adieu, here 
is the news gleaned from our Reunion 
questionnaire — • I still hope to hear from 
those of you who did not return the blank. 

Dorothy Acuff Stone is living in Darien, 
Connecticut, and is a busy Mother to her 
three girls and a boy. 

Bunnie Alves MacEwan lives in Palm 
Bay, Florida, and has a 17-year-old son 
and a 13-year-old daughter. She keeps 
busy with club work, gardening, water

Frances Austin Ferris is enjoying her 
new home in Bedford (Mass.) and keeps 
very busy with her 16-year-old son and her 
14-year-old daughter. Fran is the chief 
dietitian at the Symmes General Hospital 
in Arlington. 

Babe Beamer Dahlberg writes that her 
hobbies are "the children" — Charles Wil- 
liam, 19, a Sophomore at the U.S. Air 
Force Academy in Colorado, James Lee, 15, 
and two daughters aged 12 and 13, my 
Dad, 90 years young, our business and an 
occasional 'Hi Darling' to my Texas-born 
husband — twenty-one years of marriage 
this past April 3rd. Member of Hawaii 
Chapter #\ Order of Eastern Star of 
which I am a past Matron (1954) and to 
which is dedicated "The Eastern Star 
Prayer" (a musical composition — words 
and music by my Mother, Helen Desha 
Beamer, Past Matron 1944). I have in- 
cluded this information for some of the 
'37ers may also be Stars. Any Kappas in 
the group? I am a KKG — University of

again in Europe. "Ten days in Austria — 
each day and night of the first week in dif- 
ferent cities. The Sunday finale in Vienna

among them Leontyne Price."

What a wonderful time we had June 9th 
on the occasion of our 15th Reunion! Al- 
though the attendance was not as high as 
we would have liked and had hoped it 
would be (half of our numbers live in New 
England and more than half of that num- 
ber reside in the Bay State). However, 
what we lacked in numbers was made up 
in spirit and jollity. 

Many of us gathered for coffee at Alum- 
nae Headquarters and attended the catered 
luncheon. The afternoon flew by with 
visits to old dorms, attending college 
events and just talking, talking, and more 
talking. By six we gathered at The Mari- 
dor, enjoyed a delicious dinner, and stayed 
until quite late talking, reading letters. 



perusing our class scrapbook, showing 
snaps, and talking some more.

Dear Gals, 

It was with • mixed emotions that Pete 
and I left New England for the State of 
New Jersey. I was, of course, sorry to have 
to resign as first vice-president of Lasell 
Alumnae Inc., but Peter's new assignment 
with A.T.&T. in New York City, made the 
leaving a little easier. 

We enjoyed a number of Lasell visitors 
at our summer place in Gilmanton, N.H. 
Lois Schaller Toegemann, husband Joe, 
sons Artie and Tommy, and daughter Lisa 
stayed with us for a weekend. Later in the 
summer Nancy Bean Lord and Jack, with 
their three children, came over from Maine 
for a few days. 

Since coming to Westfield, I've seen El- 
len Key Woodruff, who lives but two miles 
away. Her new address is 73 Lupine Way, 
Sterling, N.J. Sister Joyce Davies Harrison 
has moved to 11 Dixon Court, Glens Falls, 
NY. Marilyn Hubner Sherwood and I 
had a small reunion recently at her Mine- 
ola home."

From Framingham, Carolyn Snook Rausch-

move leaves me at a loss. While in Natick 
we were able to chat and visit frequently —

shall miss her dearly. Her sister Joyce 
Davies Harrison has a new address too: 
11 Dixon Court, Glens Falls, N.Y. 

"Had a surprise visit from my Lasell 
roommate, Ruth Mount Ivins, on October 
7th (amidst the big storm). She and her 
husband were celebrating their 12th wed- 
ding anniversary, but unfortunately chose 
a wet weekend to see the colorful leaves 
and sights in New England. Ruth tells me 
that her sister, Betty Mount Carduner '53, 
is fine and has two school-age children. 
One of their Hightstown (N.J.) friends, 
Betty Hood '60, is now living in Boston. 

"Nancy Wilson has been having ups and 
downs with illnesses, but is feeling wonder- 
ful now. Her address: R. D. #1, Robbins- 
ville, N.J. 

"While shopping in a local grocery store, 
met Jean Applegate Rockwood and her 
oldest daughter, who towers over mother. 

"Often see Jackie Paulding Hauser; hear 
regularly from Claire Dodge Davis; and, 
being so close to Auburndale, often run 
into Lasell students and graduates. Louise 
Dawe Turner '53 is very active in church 
and P.T.A. affairs; Bernice Van Name 
Petrone '57 and husband are members of 
our church choir. 

"While visiting in New Jersey, I attended 
a school sale and dinner, where I saw Vir- 
ginia Benham Wolf '49. She and my sister 
Barbara (Snook Haggerty '48), work to- 
gether at their local P.T.A. 

"Our cousin, Jane Edsall Jacobs '48, and 
husband 'Jake' have had a great deal of 
pleasure with their two lovely daughters. 
Jake operates a very successful restaurant, 
Friar Tuck Inn, and I am sure many Lasell 
gals have attended parties and meetings at 
his father's restaurant in Montclair — the 
Robin Hood Inn. 

"Promise to visit Lasell soon."

of friends in the Class of 1962. So come on 
gang, send the information and we'll print 
it. Send pictures of weddings, children, 
or just Lasellites. (Glossy prints, black and 
white, preferred). 

Hope you had an exciting summer. Do 
let us hear from each and every one. Write 
NOW to one of 

Your Secretaries 
P.S. REMEMBER the LEAVES will be

to the Alumnae Fund makes each of us a 
paid-up member of the Alumnae Associa- 
tion for 1962-63. Send in news and news

Our Round Robin is still travelling 
around reasonably well. It goes from north 
to south and crosses the country and back 
in just under two years now. Do keep it 
going and do keep me informed to whom 
it goes. 

Early in the summer, Judith Burbank 
Brown x-'19 called on me at Harwichport. 
I had not seen her since 1916 so I'll have 
to admit that I did not recognize her on 
sight. We had a very interesting "gab 
fest" about the good old days. She had 
seen in the Leaves that I was always at 
Harwichport in the summer so she decided 
to look me up when she was there on 
vacation. I hope other Lasellites will do 
that when on the Cape. 

Marion Griffin Wolcott, Freda Griffin 
Leining '20, and Marian Beach Barlow 
made their annual trip to Harwichport in 
August and then we all went to Mildred 
Strain Nutter's '17 home for her annual 
Lasell picnic. 

I was in Amherst in October and I tele- 
phoned Helen Nichols. She told me her 
mother was one hundred and three years 
old and she was just about to take her out 
for a ride. 

The Class extends sincere sympathy to 
Frances Harris Spear, whose husband 
passed away in October.

Florence Kimball 
1916's Class Baby 



Miss Florence S. Kimball, daughter of 
Mr. and Mrs. Richard M. Kimball has 
been appointed registrar of Mount Holyoke 
College. Miss Kimball, a Mount Holyoke 
alumna, has been head of the Harvard 
Alumni Records Office for the past 11 
years and is one of the first women ever 
to hold a Corporation appointment there. 
She first went to Cambridge in 1947, fol- 
lowing her release from the WAVES after 
World War II, to take charge of the publi- 
cation of the 1948 Harvard Law Quin- 
quennial directory. As Alumni Recorder, 
she has since been responsible for the 
publication of three Harvard Alumni Di- 
rectories and maintaining records on more 
than 125,000 living alumni. 

After graduation from Mount Holyoke, 
Miss Kimball worked for a consulting 
actuary in New York City, then served for 
four years in the Navy as a disbursing 
officer. She has just completed 20 years 
as a lieutenant commander in the Naval 
Reserve. 

She has been on the board of directors 
of the New England Hospital since 1955

(Mildred Cary) , Secretary

Mid writes: "On Octboer 21, 1962, I 
married a friend of my Norwich, Con- 
necticut, school days. He is Major General 
Edmund Walton Hill, USAF, retired, of 
Belgrade Lakes, Maine. He was Inspector 
of the U.S. Army Air Force in Washington. 
During World War II he was in command 
of all U.S. forces in Northern Ireland 
and also in command of the 8th Air Force 
Composite Command and the U.S. Air 
Forces in the U.S.S.R. and head of the 
Air Section of Military Mission to Mos- 
cow, and coordinator of Inter American 
Defense Board." 

The latest word from Mid: "We've had 
five months tour of Europe and have seen 
some beautiful spots; Berchtesgaden and 
Garmisch were the loveliest. Saw Hitler's 
Eagle's Nest. Went up the mountain in a 
'bubble car' which was very exciting. 
Vienna was the fun city. See you all in 
June."

bee's course in the reading and writing 
of verse to practical use. Her poems are 
published under the pen name, Burnham 
Eaton. Miss Witherbee's English courses

Master's in Education at Rutgers and has 
an interesting and challenging position 
waiting for her in the Extension Service 
of the New Jersey Department of Agri- 
culture. I am still employed as the Execu- 
tive Secretary of the Atlantic County as- 
sociation for Mental Health and am 
thrilled with the strides we are making in 
public acceptance." 

Lucy Field Wildman regretted she could 
not attend the Reunion, unusual for Lucy 
who has attended many. Her reason: "My 
son, Jerry, finishes his Peace Corps training 
on June eighth and will be home only 
ten days until he leaves for the Philippines 
for two years. My hobbies are knitting 
and needlepoint and now I am a member 
of the Valley Weavers. Of course we go 
to the farm in Virginia as often as possible 
to be with our granddaughters."

Also the Verde Valley in Arizona, San 
Francisco, and the peninsula. Shooting, 
fishing, gardens, old houses, flowering trees 
and flower arranging are our hobbies. "We 
keep up with two Weimaraners and a long 
list of clubs and societies which revolve 
around these interests." 

Kay Tufts Wiese writes "We came home 
after a winter in Sarasota, Florida, and 
stopped in Charleston, West Virginia, to 
see Lucy Field Wildman and her husband. 
Had a wonderful visit catching up on all 
the Lasell news. As to hobbies, I have 
been collecting sea shells. It is a fascinat- 
ing hobby. Also took lessons in copper 
enamel work." Kay has two children, a 
son and daughter. 

From Sylvia Chandler Hooker we learn 
that she couldn't attend the reunion as her 
husband's niece was being married in North 
Carolina on the same weekend. She says, 
"Last week we spent an evening with 
Evelyn Suor Butterworth and her husband 
who were attending a medical convention 
in Boston and had a wonderful time rem- 
iniscing about '26 and '27. 

Our Nan Pagin Page who attended the 
Reunion last June looking just marvelous 
had a very unfortunate accident just before 
Christmas. She was preparing to come to 
Boston to visit her son for the Holidays. 
Unfortunately, just before leaving she 
slipped on the ice and injured her back 
very seriously. After being hospitalized, I 
have heard that she is much better and is 
making a fine recovery. 

At this point, I would welcome pictures, 
news etc., so take a moment one day and

From Barbara Jennings: "Further proof 
of our 'small world' — after seven years 
the meeting of two '55ers in Barbados, 
an island of the British West Indies. Beryl 
Schelhorn Frey, while standing under a 
swaying palm tree in the moonlight, sip- 
ping her rum punch, turned suddenly and 
came face to face with Bobbie Jennings, 
standing under the same palm tree sipping 
her rum punch. 

Beryl, her husband, her mother and her 
two children (Tabetha Gay, age 4, and 
Karl Walter, age 1) spent their two-week 
holiday in the relaxed atmosphere of Bar- 
bados, a tropical English colony located 
in the Caribbean Sea near South America. 
Their 'flat' was located on a white beach, 
surrounded by palm trees, fruit trees, and 
numerous flowering shrubs. Their meals 
were cooked by a Barbajan woman who 
introduced them to the exotic native cook- 
ing common to the West Indies. 

Bobbie has become a native of the Carib- 
bean Islands, living in St. Thomas, Virgin 
Islands, for a year and a half and re- 
cently moving to Barbados. After leaving 



Eastern Air Lines (stewardess) and the 
United States, she went on a world tour to 
gain 'an education through people and 
places.' Her plans are to remain in each 
location for a year or so, working and 
living with the people to learn their way 
of life. In St. Thomas she lived on a 
sailboat where she worked coordinating 
the many sailing and fishing charters that 
left from the yacht harbor. Often she 
crewed on these boats and thus visited 
many of the surrounding Caribbean Islands. 
On days off, she sat on the beaches and 
wove palm frond hats for the delighted 
tourists. 

Since Beryl's husband works for Pan 
American World Airways, Beryl and Bob- 
bie feel that another chance meeting some- 
day, perhaps Tahiti, Japan, or Australia, 
is not really that far-fetched. Beryl's ad- 
dress is 193 Kildare Road, Garden City, 
New York. Bobbie's address: Antilles 
Watersports, Aquatic Club, Barbados, West 
Indies."

deserve extra special recognition. The 
four-page newsletter "Boyer's Barnacle" 
listed family activities for the entire year 
and one page was devoted to photos. 
From Holly's account of "Summer at the 
Shipyard": "This past year has been a busy 
one indeed as far as travelling goes. The 
first of April, with the car loaded to 
capacity and just enough room left for the 
three of us to squeeze in, we took off for 
Mare Island Naval Shipyard in Vallejo, 
California (just outside of San Francisco). 
The trip was an eventful one, but we made 
it there safely. 

"We had a two bedroom apartment on 
the base which some plastic curtains and 
a rug fixed up in a hurry. You weren't 
trying to impress anyone with your origi- 
nality because we all lived in the same 
identical places. 

"All the facilities were at our disposal. 
The commissary was a one minute walk 
to the corner, with the movie, exchange, 
pool, golf course, 'O' Club, just a hop 
in the car away. 

"We went to the pool frequently and 
Davey really liked that, except I spent 
most of the afternoon chasing him around. 
Who says it's relaxing! 

"Larry and I did manage to get in some 
golf. I took a series of lessons in hope 
that I'd be able to beat him, but lessons 
and all he still managed to win. 

"Indeed life was not dull! We gals had 
our bridge games during the day while 
hubbies worked hard. And then we had 
our evening bridge games, and managed 
to see a few good movies here and there. 
There was Bingo at the 'O' Club every 
Wednesday night. This kept me busy eve- 
nings while Larry was working on his 
qualification notebook. 

"On the weekends we managed to take 
a few close to home trips. We picnicked 
at Lake Berryessa, went to Sonoma and 
visited General Vallejo's home and the old 
mission. When Aunt Joy came to see us 
after school was out, we made the trip to 



Sacramento and visited the Capitol, state 
buildings, museums, and Sutters' Fort. 
Since Northern California is such grape 
growing country, we visited Christian 
Brothers' Winery and enjoyed the tour."

LASELL LEAVES 



Playing Fields from Hills 



Since the founding of Lasell, students have undoubtedly strolled along the 
hogback known as the "Esker," a geological formation dating from one of the 
glacial periods. At the base of its natural semicircle is Haskell's Pond where girls 
have secured samples of algae and skated for generations. A footpath wound from 
Seminary Avenue behind Bradgon Hall to a point on Grove Street. 

(To identify the location more specifically, there are even rumors which 
cannot be verified that naughty girls sought exercise in the vicinity while they 
"sneaked a smoke" in the days when cigarettes on campus were forbidden.) 

Lasell students were only trespassers on the property until 1939 when the 
Board, under the direction of Dr. Guy M. Winslow, bought Haskell's Pond and 
two adjoining acres. In 1958, on the death of Miss Mabel T. Eager, long a Trustee, 
five additional acres of undeveloped woodland were added to the plot by her 
bequest. 

It has always been uncertain what useful purpose this acreage could serve 
because, under the terms of Miss Eager's will, no structure could be erected on 
the property for 35 years. It seems clear, then, that Miss Eager intended that the 
area be used for recreational purposes. 

As Lasell's student population has grown to 650 girls, the one playing field 
available for physical education activities in the Spring and Fall has become 
inadequate — to the point that activities must be scheduled during the lunch 
hour. This problem, coupled with the factor of open land scarcity, led the Board 
to explore possibilities of utilizing the Esker. 

Engineers first determined that the Esker was basically composed of gravel; 
secondly, that about 280,000 cubic yards were available for removal if the area 
were reduced to a level. Lastly, reconstruction of Route 128 and extension of the 
Massachusetts Turnpike in the vicinity had placed a premium on gravel sources 
readily available. 

To make a very long story short, necessary permits were secured from City 
authorities and bids requested from all interested parties. The result is that 35,000 
truck loads of gravel will be removed during the period of the next year and a 
half. Top soil is being carefully stockpiled and will eventually be spread to provide 
a surface for seven acres of recreation area, the equivalent of two hockey fields 
and seven additional tennis courts. The Pond will remain in much its present 
shape, five feet below the play area. 

Thus another goal in the long-range planning of physical development of 
the campus will be accomplished.

FIFTEENTH ANNUAL ALUMNAE COUNCIL 
MEETINGS .... 

The Annual Meeting of Lasell Alumnae, Inc. . . . 

Friday and Saturday, March 29 and 30, 1963, were the dates selected for 
Lasell's 15th Annual Alumnae Council Session. A social hour in Woodland 
Hall's East Lounge preceded Friday's dinner, enjoyed by seventy alumnae — class 
agents and secretaries and representatives from ten alumnae clubs. Seated at the 
head table were President and Mrs. Blake Tewksbury, Mr. and Mrs. Wilder Smith 
(Antoinette Meritt '23), Mr. and Mrs. Ward Manghue, Alumnae President Bar- 
bara Iris Johnson '35, and special guests, Patricia Raeder Crone '51 and Lillian 
Doane Maddigan '21, president and treasurer of The Buffalo Club. 

Dr. Tewksbury welcomed the group, showed maps of the campus and ex- 
plained the proposed use of the Esker property. He announced the receipt of 
two anonymous gifts: $5,000 to be used for equipment in the new classroom 
building; and a generous contribution from an alumna to provide a memorial 
for Miss Lillie R. Potter. There is a need for more appropriate appointments for i 
use during chapel programs at Winslow Hall, and the money will be used for 
this purpose. Purchases will include a reading desk, an altar and altar cloth, a 
Bible, and a pedestal for flower arrangements. 

Miss Potter, a member of the Class of 1880, served as Preceptress from 1902- 
24; Dean of Residence, 1924-35; and Dean Emerita from 1935-45. Miss Potter 
died on January 8, 1952, and among her survivors are two nieces, Mary Potter 
McConn '05, Julia Potter Schmidt '06; and two grand-nieces, Mary McConn 
Maguire '29 and Betty Schmidt Wolfe, a member of Lasell's faculty from 1942 
to 1946. 

Mr. Smith brought greetings to all from the Board of Trustees. He told 
of the need for increase in the College facilities to meet future enrollment, and 
stressed the need for funds. 

The after-dinner speaker, Mrs. Ruth E. Manghue of the Secretarial Depart- 
ment, brought a fine account of what-is-expected and what-is-accomplished by the 
secretarial students of today. She discussed the various programs within the cur- 
riculum, and told of the facilities to be provided by the new classroom building. 

"A Late Show," featuring traditional campus events and starring many 
familiar faces, closed out the evening. 

Barbara Iris Johnson presided at the Annual Meeting of Alumnae, Inc. on 
Saturday morning. The delegates were introduced; the secretary's and treasurer's 
reports were read and accepted; and proposed changes in the Constitution and 
Bylaws were accepted. 

Dorothy Inett Taylor '30 thanked the alumnae clubs for their continued sup- 
port and participation in the Christmas Wrapping Paper Project. Contributions 
to the Scholarship Fund were received from Greater Boston, Bridgeport, Buffalo, 
Connecticut Valley, Eastern Maine, Long Island, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, 
Rochester, Westchester-Lower Connecticut, Western Massachusetts and Worcester. 
The Greater Boston and Washington Clubs added to the Alumnae Building Fund; 
Chicago, Long Island, Philadelphia-South Jersey, Southern California and South 
Florida directed their contributions to The Alumnae Fund for 1962-63.

A "MATCH" ANYONE???? 



More than 200 firms throughout the United States and Canada currently have 
i a "matching gift" program to help support higher education. While individual 
companies may vary in the operating details of their programs, all are essentially 
i alike in that they match — usually dollar for dollar — the contributions of an 
i alumnus-employee to his college, university or school. When you make a con- 
tribution, you fill in a short form provided by your employer, who matches your 
gift by sending an equal amount to your college. 

YOU are the reason for these matching gift programs. Your employer is 
offering support to your Alma Mater in recognition of the contribution you, as an 
t educated person, are making to your company.

2 LASELL LEAVES 

THE PRISCILLA ALDEN WOLFE HALL .... 

Laying of the Cornerstone and Dedication Exercises for the new classroom 
building were held, directly following Alumnae Luncheon, on Saturday, June 8, 
1963. The Reverend Eugene W. Meyer, pastor of the Auburndale Congregational 
Church, delivered the Invocation. Dr. Blake Tewksbury then addressed the au- 
dience: 

''This is a significant day in the history of Lasell Junior College. Many gen- 
erations of students and faculty and alumnae have waited long years for this new 
classroom building to be built. It is at once both a solemn and a joyous occasion — 
solemn because we are deeply conscious of the fact that one for whom this building 
is to be named did not live to see her dream come true; joyous because we revel in 
the sight of a much desired classroom building brought into being. 

"Today we are witnesses to the fulfillment of another major step toward the 
realization of a purpose that motivated a group of citizens in 1851 to found this 
institution. The vision of these founders has survived many severe tests in the in- 
tervening 112 years and has provided the incentive to successive boards of trustees 
and faculties alike to strive to attain the standards that today are synonymous with 
the name Lasell Junior College. 

"The past year has been one of accomplishment and of promise. Plans that for 
years seemed to be no more than dreams have come to fruition and foundations for 
further growth have been established. 

"On this significant occasion it is my privilege to welcome all visitors who 
have come here to participate in these ceremonies. We particularly acknowledge the 
presence of members of the Alden and Wolfe families. Despite your sorrow and 
sense of irreplaceable loss, we know you rejoice in the opportunities which will be 
provided to oncoming generations of Lasell girls by this new facility. 

"On behalf of the trustees, faculty, staff and students, we also welcome our 
alumnae and our friends and neighbors of Auburndale. To this latter group may 
I address a request for tolerance if we appear to be a wee bit proud today. Please 
remember that Lasell Junior College doesn't build half -million-dollar buildings like 
this every week. 

"For some time we had been aware that the facilities and working conditions 
for our Secretarial Science Department had not been adequate, especially when one 
considers the great advances that have been made in that field in recent years. It 
became apparent that a new classroom building for this Department was the most 
urgent need as far as buildings go. 

"It is my belief that it is much better to have good teachers in wooden buildings 
than wooden teachers in marble halls, but in the teaching of skill subjects such as 
shorthand, typewriting, and accounting, no one can deny that good workshops and 
tools are vitally needed. 

"Lasell has always gone very slowly in the erection of buildings, and the policy 
for a great many years had been to wait until things could be done well before build- 
ing. If you seize the opportunity to inspect the structure some time today or to- 
morrow, as you are invited to do, we think you will agree it is well done. 

"A wise man once said, 'When considering a gift, consider also the giver.' 
Today, as we dedicate this splendid building, let us pause also to honor those 
whose vision and generosity have made possible its erection. Among these are the 
students of the Class of 1963, who, together with students of the graduating classes 



LASELL LEAVES 3 

of the past decade, have made annual gifts to the Building Fund averaging $1,500. 
We also recognize alumnae and friends who have given liberally of their resources 
so that we might meet here today for this ceremony. 

"These gifts have ranged from $1.00 to $5,000 and the total is $225,000. For 
thousands of donors, then, this building stands as a testimonial to their abiding faith 
and confidence in Lasell Junior College. To all these thoughtful people, and to the 
many more who have indicated the desire to participate, the College owes a deep 
debt of gratitude. 

"Following a gleam through clouds of uncertainty and fear, through days of 
trial and of hardship, the Pilgrims came to the shores of New England. John 
Alden and Priscilla Mullins were of that stalwart group. The gleam that then 
flashed on Plymouth Rock has since repeatedly flickered from ocean to ocean 
throughout the subsequent decades of our history. 'And as one small candle,' wrote 
Governor Bradford with pardonable exaggeration, 'may light a thousand, so the 
light here kindled hath shown unto many, yea in some sorte to our whole nation.' 
We would like to believe that Lasell likewise kindles a light for many. 

"Colleges have been called undying institutions. Certainly they are eternally 
vital to the life of this nation and of the civilization of which America is a part. 
They can fulfill their high mission only as they continue to grow in strength, and 
in these times of challenge they must do their job better than ever before. 

"Lasell will not be found wanting, nor will those on the campus and Lasell's 
friends and supporters be found wanting. We are today the legatees of men and 
women who were willing to pledge to the nation 'their lives, their fortunes and 
their sacred honor.' We shall match their devotion with our energies, our intelli- 
gence, and our resources to educate here young women wise enough and good 
enough to make a success of their own lives, and through and beyond that, to 
make a strong contribution to our nation and our world." 

Mr. Wilder N. Smith, Chairman of the Board of Trustees, gave the Dedication 
speech : 

"There is always a feeling of accomplishment when a new building is dedi- 
cated. It represents the fulfillment of someone's idea or dream. For some years, it 
has been apparent to the Officers of Lasell that we need expanded classroom facili- 
ties, but to Priscilla Alden Wolfe the first and most important objective was a new 
building for the Secretarial Science Department, and while she was Chairman 
of the Board of Trustees, she worked relentlessly to that end, and this building 
which we are now dedicating is the accomplishment of her endeavors. 

"Priscilla Alden Wolfe, a direct descendant of Priscilla and John Alden of the 
Plymouth Colony, was graduated from Lasell in 1919. President of her Senior Class 
and President of the Student Council, a member of every student activity, she was 
most respected and popular. She was awarded the Lasell Sweater, which was the 
equivalent of today's Lasell Jacket. 

"Shortly after graduation, Priscilla married Leonard Wolfe and in the follow- 
ing years they had three children: Leonard Jr., Alden and Virginia, who was grad- 
uated from Lasell in 1944. Priscilla's loyalty to Lasell increased with the years, and 
she gave of her time unstintingly. 

"In 1937 she was responsible for the successful fund-raising drive for the erec- 
tion of Winslow Hall. She was a Past President of Lasell Alumnae; a member of 
its Board of Management; a member of the Lasell Corporation; elected a Trustee 
in 1948; served as Vice-President of the College from 1955 to 1959; and thereafter 
was Chairman of the Board of Trustees until the time of her death. 

"As a resident of New Hampton, New Hampshire, Priscilla found time to 



4 LASELL LEAVES 

participate in many community affairs, such as the Woman's Club, the Garden Club, 
the Red Cross, Public School affairs, the Hospital Board, Church activities and many 
other organizations. But in spite of all these duties, I feel that next to her fam- 
ily, Priscilla's first love was Lasell. 

"And so, in admiration for her many years of service to Lasell, we dedicate 
this building as a permanent memorial to her, and in her honor name it The Pris- 
cilla Alden Wolfe Hall. 

"It is the intention of the Trustees to place a plaque in the Entrance Hall of 
this building, which will read as follows: 

This building is dedicated to the memory of 

Priscilla Alden Wolfe, '19 

1899- 1961 

President of Lasell Alumnae Association, 1934-36 

Member of the Corporation and Trustee of Lasell Junior College, 1936-61 

Chairman of the Board of Trustees, 1939-61 

A tenth generation descendant of John and Priscilla Alden, 
she exemplified both in her daily life and in her devotion 
to Lasell the highest ideals of her Pilgrim forebears, ably 
serving both her community and the College with courage, 
loyalty and enthusiasm."

LASELL LEAVES 



FROM THE ALUMNAE 



1898 

From Caroline Kendall Putnam: "Please 
accept my very best wishes for Lasell. I 
am happy to know the College is expanding 
and progressing so well." 



1903 

From Emily A. Clemens x-'03: "Had so 
hoped I might join the Class of 1903 at 
Commencement time. My sister, Isabella 
(Clemens '01) and I are sailing for England 
and Scotland on June 13th, and we cannot 
manage time for the Boston trip. We both 
remember with much pleasure our visit to 
Lasell on the occasion of the Centennial Cele- 
bration, and again in 1953. Our very best 
good wishes to- 1903 and Lasell." 



1908 

From Grace Emerson Cole: "Lasell has 
made important strides since our small 
class of seventeen was graduated. I am sor- 
ry to miss the 55th Reunion, but I am sail- 
ing for Europe on June 5th." 

In Memoriam: Gertrude Bragdon Edwards 
in June 1963 in East Orange, N. J. Mrs. 
Edwards, a niece of the late Dr. Charles 
C. Bragdon, is survived by her husband, 
four daughters and a son. 



1909 

From Constance E. Blackstock: "My sis- 
ter, Isabel Blackstock Beardsley '03, and I 
regret we are unable to be in Auburndale 
at Commencement time. With two Phila- 
delphia classmates, I plan to attend my 50th 
Reunion at Goucher College. Next year 
will be my 55th at Lasell — and I shall be 
there." 



1913 




Alma L. Bunch '13 and Father 



From Chicago, Alma L. Bunch writes: "It 
is with real regret that I cannot be at the 
College on the occasion of our 50th Re- 
union. It would be a great pleasure to re- 
live in memory the three happy years I 
spent at Lasell. The nearest I can come is 
to send you a snapshot of myself and my 
father on his 98th birthday, February 24, 
1963." 



1914 

From Alleda Burnett Arneson: "Enjoyed 
another delightful winter in Winter Park, 
Florida. Mary Bingaman, Katherine Binga- 
man Heron '15 and I drove on a twelve-day 
trip to Long Boat Key, near Sarasota, where 
we visited with Dora Goodwillie. Have 
driven eight times from Minnesota to Flor- 
ida, and wonder if I shall 'hold out' for 
our 50th Reunion." 



1915 

From Veda Ferguson Purdy: "Enjoyed a 
September visit with Ethel Vance Foster '14 
in Scarsdale. Returned in March from a 
world cruise." 



From Georgina Fankboner Roberts: 
"Mary Fenno Stirn and I have each written 
to our 1913 classmates, and we do hope 
there will be a good representation at our 
famous 50th Reunion Luncheon. Am sin- 
cerely sorry I cannot plan to be there. 
Have received the sad news that Inez 
Payne passed away several years ago." 



1916 

From Rose Baer Trexler x-'l6: "Serving 
as our Hospital President this year; four- 
teen men on the Board and I am the only 
woman. It's an" interesting experience.

1921 

Esther Murray Downs x-'21 was among 
those attending the Town and Gown Flow- 
er Show and Art Exhibit, sponsored by the 
Auburndale Garden Club and Lasell's Art 
Department, on April 24-25, 1963. Esther, 
now living at 9 Euclid Circle, Natick, has 
two sons, one a professor at North Carolina 
State University; and three grandchildren. 



1922 

The Class extends sincere sympathy to 
Barbara Smith Huntington, whose husband. 
Col. Frederick W. Huntington, passed away 
in late March, after a brief illness. 



The Perfectionist 

They say I ask tco much of life, 

Too much of love, that it should keep 

High tryst with stars we never reach, 

And dreams that signify a mind asleep. 

But if I ask a friend be brave 

Or beauty never hide her face, 

Am I less wise than those who hold 

Themselves to no criterion of grace? 

How, if a leaf shall show no fault, 

God draw perfection out of clay. 

Is then the true heart vain to seek 

High aim a premium men are loath to pay? 

No — I have seen the rose in perfect bud. 

Seen the sure stars wheel on to Thule; 

I can believe in flawless shapes. 

Fearless who names me sage or fool! 

M.H.B. 



1925 

Mr. Roger Wolcott, husband of Helen 
Wahlquist Wolcott, passed away in Febru- 
ary 1963. Helen has sold the large Colonial 
home, and has moved to a small five-room 
ranch at 58 West Granby Road, Granby, 
Conn. 



1926 

The College and Lasell Alumnae, Inc. 
gratefully acknowledge the receipt of 
two copies of "Whistling Woman," a col- 
lection of poems written by the late Maries- 
ta Howland Bloom. Mariesta's husband, 
daughter and son have prefaced the vol- 
ume: "After raising and educating her fam- 
ily and serving as a vital part of the civic, 
educational, and artistic life of Peoia 
(111.), Mrs. Bloom was returning to her 
first love — writing. Her Number One 
project was to compile a book of her 
poems, which she completed shortly before 
her final illness. So, since there can never 
be another volume, it is our wish to present 
this little book of verses to her many 
friends as a memorial to a vital, alert, intel- 
ligent and intellectual personality who 
strove continually for perfection and of a 
poet who created a spectrum of poetry 
from the routine of daily living." 

Dedicated by the author to: All the "girls" 
— Dorothy Parker, Edna St. Vincent Mil- 
lay, Sara Teasdale, Katherine Mansfield, 
Eleanor Wylie and Phyllis McGinley, and 
many another "Whistling Woman," the col- 
lection includes over sixty poems, many in 
Spanish, which have appeared in Coronet, 
Good Housekeeping, Westminster Maga- 
zine, New York Times, Neir York Amer- 
ican Book Page, Christian Science Moni- 
tor, Boston Transcript, Peoria Star, Bio- 
graphical Dictionary of Contemporary 
Poets and World's Fair Anthology. 



1927 

From Madeleine Robinhold Leinbach: 
"Please send me a transcript of my Lasell 
credits. The need is urgent for I find it 
necessary to attend summer school in order 
to get a teaching position. Am planning to 
prepare for elementary schoolwork. My 
husband passed away in May 1963." 



1928 

From Edith Hussey Adams: "At last we 
are back home in New England — 164 
Barton Drive, Sudbury, Mass. My husband 
has been transferred to the West Concord 
office of General Radio Corp. Our older 
son, Kipling, Jr., a graduate of Lehigh Uni- 
versity, is now associated with the Norton 
Company in Worcester. John is a first-year 
student at the University of Chicago, major- 
ing in Humanities. 

A new address for Bettie Smith Scollon is 
11 South Knoll Road, Mill Valley, Califor- 
nia. Bettie's younger daughter, Janet, has 
just completed her sophomore year at San 
Francisco State University. 



1929 

Isabelle "Zip" Daggett Wilson took time 
from her packing — (she and Don have 
moved a small Cape cottage with "not so 
much lawn" at 27 Brush Hill Road, Sher- 
born, Mass.) — to forward news from Jean 
Smith Orne and Teddy Pratt Brown. Jean 
writes: "Wilmington (Del.) is a very busy 
place to live. Continue to do hospital work 
(chairman of the Tea Room for the second 
year), and am serving for the 16th year on 
the Board for Home for Incurably III. 
Really looking forward to 1929's Reunion 
— do hope the dates do not coincide with

LASELL LEAVES 



Bowdoin Commencement weekend. In June 
Art became president of Bowdoin's Alumni 
Council — this means a busy year for us — 
wives participate in the program. 

And from Middlebury, Conn., Teddy 
writes: "Just doesn't seem possible that our 
35th is so near at hand! Our last one 
seemed just yesterday, as did the 25th — 
and 10th. Put my name on the list with an 
exclamation point — indicating enthusi- 
asm. Per usual, I've been as busy as a 
beaver with a finger in many community 
activities. Won the women's golf cham- 
pionship in Waterbury last year, and seem 
to find time for golf nearly every day in 
the summer. At the moment, I'm taking 
piano lessons ! It's something I've wanted 
to do for years, and I can honestly say that 
you, Zip, are in many ways responsible. 
However, not having been born with your 
wonderful gift, I confine my practicing 
hours to when I am alone. My other hobby 
is raising orchids. Have enjoyed this pas- 
time for some ten or twelve years — don't 
sell the orchids — use them for corsages 
for friends' birthdays or anniversaries. Bill 
and I are alone at home now — our two 
sons are married and we have three won- 
derful grandchildren. Our daughter grad- 
uates from House in the Pines in June '63 
and is looking forward to college." 

The Class extends sincere sympathy to 
Constance Chalmers Harlow, whose hus- 
band, Mr. Frank B. Harlow, passed away 
on June 27, 1963 in Bangor, Maine. Mr. 
Harlow, general manager of the Penobscot 
Chemical Fibre Company, was well-known 
throughout the paper industry and had 
contributed greatly to the civic life of the 
community. In addition to his wife, he is 
survived by two daughters, Mrs. Damaris 
Virtue of Grand Forks, N.D., and Frances 
Harlow of Orono, Maine. 



1930 

Class Secretary Frances Smith Miller re- 
ports: "In late April we had a surprise 
visit from Peggy Boyd Greene and hus- 
band. They come to Andover frequently 
for their daughter attends Rogers Hall in 
Lowell. Peg looked so happy — she and 
her husband have two sons and one daugh- 
ter — and a brand new grandchild, of whom 
the grandparents are ever so proud ! This 
past winter, while on the annual Florida 
vacation, they met Sue Morgan Williams 
and husband Doug, and Ruth Doughty 
Blaylock." 

Barbara Fitch, daughter of Priscilla Bar- 
ber Fitch, received the degree of bachelor 
of science in education at the 75th Com- 
mencement exercises at Wheelock College, 
Boston, on June 2, 1963. 



1931 

From Mary Frances Wynkoop Benja- 
min, 5931 N. E. 14th Way, Fort Lauder- 
dale, Florida: "We live a lazy, relaxed life 
here. Is there an Alumnae club in this area 
■ — or any former Lasell gals I might know? 
Do keep in touch with Penny (Alice Penny 
Carter), Dottie Wickham Marquis and 
Gert Hooper Ring '32. Our son John, 
who was twenty-four in May, has been ill 
for nearly four years. He was forced to 
give up college, but is struggling to take 
a few courses to complete his education." 



1932 

Charlotte Moreau Sauve proudly re- 
ported to Lasell's Retailing Department 
that Paulette (Sauve '62) was elected 
to Psi Epsilon, the honor society of Busi- 
ness Administration at the University of 
New Hampshire. 

While on an early summer Eastern vaca- 
tion, Agnes Riley VanSantford had "a yen 
to look about the campus." That she did; 
and it was a pleasant afternoon we spent 
with Agnes and her husband. Their Cali- 
fornia address is 716 Marigold Avenue, 
Corona delMar. 



1933 

Mr., and Mrs. R. Alan Chesebro (Shirley 
Gould) announce the engagement of their 
daughter, Nancy, to Alan Russel York of 
Auburndale. Nancy was graduated in June 
from Vermont College; her fiance is a 
member of the Class of 1964 at Colgate 
University. 

1935 

From Cindy King Haskins: "My Lani had 
her second baby in December — Deborah 
King Ebersold. I'm a grandmaw twice 
over — her Mark will be two in June. 
Skip is a member of the Class of 1963 
at Cheshire Academy, and is suffering 
through college boards and interviews. 
Karin (Eliasson Monroe '31), Hank and 
the three girls stayed over-nite with me 
last August en route from Ellsworth to 
Washington. What a wonderful family — 
and Karin still simply bubbles ! Other 
Lasell chums aren't writing as they used 
to do — so news is mighty scarce."

year for I loved being a Little White Dove 
— if only for one year. I, too, have many 
irons in the fire as do you, but no one can 
say it is a dull life! My work as welfare 
director in a district of five towns is simply 
fascinating. My daughter is as full of music 
as I was, and she is far more accomplished. 
She is a piano player, has seven banjos, 
thirteen guitars and plays both trumpet 
and French horn in the local orchestra. 
She has performed on Channel 6 TV, 
Teen-Age Barn program, for over a year. 
I still play piano for church and square 
dances — quite a combination. Your men- 
tion of 30th Reunion made me look at the 
gray hairs! Wish I might have joined you 
gals." 

1937 

From Glennys Preston Allicon: "We are 
having great fun settling our new home — 
Valleyview Drive, R. F. D. #1, Essex Junc- 
tion, Vermont. Certainly did enjoy the 
25th Reunion at Tap's last June." 

Meredith Johnson French: "Still living 
by the sea in Bristol, Rhode Island. 
Daughter Katharine is attending the Lin- 
coln School for Girls in Providence." 

Anne Campbell Terrell x-'37: "It was 
great fun to visit the campus and to find 
such progress ! Good luck on the building 
program." 

1938 

A pre-Reunion letter from Betty Jackson 
Dunning: 

It all began twenty-seven years ago as I, 
upon entering Bragdon Hall for registra- 
tion, fell up the cement steps. Two years 
later, I received the highest honor in Home 
Economics — the "Golden Loaf of Bread" 

— and, properly elated, tripped on my 
graduation gown and fell down the same 
two steps. 

I enjoyed a short-lived foods career and 
finished off in the banking business. Met 
and married a travelling "wool" career man 

— and during his Marine Corps service, 
ran a boarding house for Navy men and 
their wives, and sold cosmetics in return 
for their baby-sitting with our first daugh- 
ter. Husband Vin was medically dis- 
charged with two bad hands; we promptly 
moved to an antique saltbox in Hingham. 
The restoration of the old home plus the 
collection of antiques proved the "hand 
therapy." Being prolific, we soon outgrew 
the 300-year-old house; sold same with 
antiques; bought a four-room modern 
"box" on a beautiful, natural-setting acre, 
and remodelled and added as each child 
arrived. (They always fit into bureau 
drawers instead of pink fluffy bassinets 




The Dunnings 
(Betty Jackson '38) 

during the remodelling stages.) So five 
children later — we have an eleven-room, 
modern ranch-type house with children's 
wing — all on one floor ! 

In those early days I was well organized, 
so did club and home flower arrangements 
and at holiday-time, gave lectures on 
Christmas decorations. It was a "put a 
diaper on the baby and put a bow on a 
Christmas wreath" type of home job. 

Five children and four walls were clos- 
ing in, so I decided on a mother's day off 
at the Y.W.C.A. and studied Japanese 
Flower Arranging and entered other or- 
ganizations. Currently am secretary of the 
Boston Florence Crittendon Home, have 
presided at the Mother's Club (a natural!), 
and am a life member of all P.T.A.'s. 

Joined my sister on a month's tour of 
Europe and, being interested in children 
abroad, entered the American Field Service 
work. We have an "adopted" Iranian 
daughter, who spent one year with us, and 
our #2 daughter is honored to represent 
our town (Hingham, Mass.), via A.F.S. 
scholarship, in Japan this summer. Re- 
cently retired my two-year presidency in 
the Boston Chapter of Ikebana Interna- 
tional, worldwide Japanese flower arrang- 
ing organization, and early this spring 
presented lectures on the "Japanese In- 
fluence in our Flower Arrangements." Also 
do "commercial" flower arranging in a 
local flower shop. 

My husband, vice commodore of the 
Hingham Yacht Club, is still selling wool 
and we have our "millions" tied up in five 
wonderful children. Penny, our oldest, is 
a junior at Smith College, majoring in 
Math and French, and is pinned to a Johns 
Hopkins boy; Marsha, our high school 
senior, is a cheerleader and honor student;

LASELL LEAVES 



Wendy, cheerleader at the junior high 
school; Kim, our one boy, is a fourth 
grader, Little League shortstop, and ALL 
BOY; Terri, our youngest at eight, is the 
best speller in her class of the second 
grade. All ages and all stages! 

Looking back, I realize it may be all 
"organized confusion" — but so interest- 
ing and I am proud to have been blessed 
with twenty-five years of truly wonderful 
living. 

P.S. I have never had time to make a 
"Loaf of Bread." 

E. J. D. 

1940 

We extend sincere sympathy to Jean 
Church Smith x-'40, whose son, James L. 
Tahns, passed away on April 11. 1963 in 
San Francisco, Calif. James was the grand- 
son of the late Isabelle Bowers Church 
x-'03. 

From Frances Britton Holden: "Boy 
Scouting and Girl Scout Service Team 
work take up my time — along with Gar- 
den Club programming — and the reading 
of college entrance requirements as out- 
oldest son is faced with the decision of 
a chosen college. Sorry we have no girls 
to send to Lasell." 



1941 

From Secretary Ginny DeNyse: "Our 
two travelling classmates are at it again! 
On April 25th Gert Fischer was off to Ire- 
land for an eight-day study tour with the 
Connecticut Travel Agents; then on to a 
driving stint through the French Chateaux 
country. Eleanor Pfaff flew to California 
for the Academy Awards Show. If you 
looked carefully at the TV screen, you 
would have seen Ellie sitting beside Ed 
Begley during the presentations. 

"Dorothy Macomber Vannah's husband 
has a September business assignment in 
Switzerland; Dot and the two children will 
join him for a trip through Germany, Hol- 
land, Belgium and France. We were sorry 
to learn that Dot's father passed away in 
December. The Class extends sincere sym- 
pathy to her and to her family. 

"Susan Zimmer, daughter of Buff Claw- 
son Zimmer, was married on December 28, 
1962 in South Salem, N. Y. The groom 
James Garfield Morris A2/c, is stationed 
at Lowry Air Force Base in Denver. 

"Dr. Marvine Weatherby reports con- 
tinued wonderful practice in Dallas. 
'Tex' recently enjoyed a freighter trip to 
Trinidad and Dutch Guiana, "and is fast 
to admit this is her special mode of travel 
— informal and no telephones." 




For 1963 and 1964 too — "Hauoli 

Makahiki Hou" from the Warrens 

(Jeannette Jahn '41) 

1942 

From Sybil Feinberg Stone to Miss Jac- 
quelin Saunders. Char-ma-* of Lisell's A' - t 
Department: "In the November 1962 
LEAVES I read of the interest and activ- 
ity at the College in obtaining fine repro- 
ductions of contemporary art works for 
rental to students. In 1959, '60 and '61 I 
was co-chairman of the Boston University 
Art Exhibition and Sales project sponsored 
by the Friends of Art for the purpose of 
raising, scholarship money for deserving 
art students at B.U. School of Fine and Ap- 
plied Arts." 

1943 

From Betty Gorton Collier, Chapel 
House, Kingskettle, Fife, Scotland: 

Dear Friends, 

It does not seem possible that a whole 
year has elapsed since the Collier family 
was piped ashore in Greenock by two 
Scottish Pipers in full Highland dress. Our 
then brand-new station wagon now has 
nearly 12,000 miles registered on the meter, 
attesting to the fact that it has criss- 
crossed at least some of this faie country 
— and to the fact that its owner can safely 
drive on the left-hand side of the road with 
the steering wheel on the right, though 
occasionally I try to get into the driver's 
seat via the incorrect door. We think the 
country is perfectly delightful and even 
now Stan talks of returning when he re- 
tires. Young Paul simply states he "is not 
going back to the States." The rest of us 
simply enjoy the days as they come — find- 
ing each one full of pleasant experiences. 

Stan is discovering that being Chairman 
of the Board is WORK. The job is going 
to take longer than it seemed on the sur- 
face for though his people are willing, 



LASELL LEAVES

they find new ways difficult. We say that 
it seems as if one had turned back the cal-. 
endar about thirty years. Some of this, 
in a social way and as it affects the pace of 
life, is not bad — in fact, it is quite delight- 
ful; but in a business way, it will not sell 
Pfaudler-Permutit glass-lined steel equip- 
ment, nor will it keep the manufacture of 
it competitive. This makes Stan's hair 
turn even more white ! 

We play as hard as he works, ard the 
social life is worlds apart from anything 
we have ever experienced. We enjoy our 
golf games and evenings out with the 
Methel and Leven tradespeople and pro- 
fessionals as well as with our former 
neighbors in Upper Largo. Our landlord 
and family are related to many of the 
"County" families in Fife, and live a very 
gay life into which we have had a few 
peeks. (We thought it was wonderful to 
have a large dining room where we can 
easily seat twenty-two at one table — and 
have several times — but in the really big 
houses, there are TWO dining rooms, large 
and small. The posh thing to do is to have 
just a few people in the intimate room.) 

Dancing is so popular a way of enter- 
taining here. We have danced more in 
Scotland in one year that we did in the 
States in ten. Private homes are opened 
for a favorite charity — can you imagine 
inviting 200-500 people to drop in and 
dance at your home? Extra fun for us is 
the Scottish Country Dancing, each with 
its own formation and different steps. We 
were pushed and led through them at the 
beginning, but now we can do the Duke 
of Perth, The Rightsome Reel and others. 
The children can do even more. 

The two big social weekends in Fife are 
the Hunt Ball in January, and the Point-to- 
Point Races in April. For the Hunt Ball, 
I enjoyed the first long ball gown I have 
had since before the war. The evening 
was magnificent and quite like taking part 
in a technicolor movie — members of the 
Hunt wore pink tail coats, others in kilts 
with velvet jackets, jabots and frilly cuffs. 
Many of the gorgeously gowned women 
wore diamond tiaras. The food was fab- 
ulous — there were three different menus 
for sit-down meals depending upon wheth- 
er one wanted to eat early (11 p.m.), mid- 
dle evening or breakfast. 

The April race meeting was fun and 
very neighborly. Only horses which have 
been used locally during the current hunt- 
ing season can be raced in the 3V2- m i le - 
20-jump course. The evening dance was 
held at the 100-room home of our local 
member of Parliament. We had been 
there previously for dinner, and were as- 
tounded to find we did not even use the 



rooms we had been in during our first 
visit. 

Our Chapel House is great fun, and we 
are thoroughly enjoying the process of 
bringing it up to date enough to live in 
with American ways and rot too much 
help. I think our new friends are amused 
with our struggle. Of course, the hou c e is 
about three times as large as our Roches- 
ter (N.Y.) home. I have painted three of 
the halls, the dining room and one bed- 
room, and we have had a very modern 
kitchen installed in the butler's pantry. 
The 20x30 living room and much larger 
drawing room are quite passable, and we use 
them both. The lovely large library was ter- 
ribly cold this winter and completely closed 
off. Now that the days are sunny, it is open 
and used occasionally. There are seven 
bedrooms — most of them with bay win- 
dows and lovely views. There are three 
more rooms and four baths, as well as 
servants' rooms, which serve as dressing 
rooms, places to iron and mend, etc. We 
could press them into service if all who 
read this letter should happen to drop in at 
once. 

And I must tell you about the grounds 
and garden at Chapel. When we rented 
the house, it looked like a very substantial 
project so by mutual consent, the landlord 
continues to manage them. We have six 
glass houses, i.e., greenhouses, in which two 
gardeners raise everything they plant out- 
of-doors from seed. They also have ferns 
and geraniums, green orchids, calla lilies 
and dozens of houseplants which I cannot 
name. They raise tomato plants inside (not 
warm enough to ripen out-of-doors), as 
well as peaches, grapes and nectarines. 
There is a separate furnace for the green- 
houses. All sizeable houses have a walled 
garden and ours is about two acres, en- 
closed by a six-foot cemented stone wall. 
Within this area are planted strawberries, 
raspberries, rhubarb, peas, beans, lettuce, 
potatoes, celery, cabbage, bulbs and cut- 
ting flowers. Edging each section is a box- 
wood hedge. Really, it is a picture I wish 
you might all see. 

We have thousands of snowdrops, daffo- 
dils and narcissi planted at random on 
the banks of ou" private glen. The burn 
even has its own waterfall. Last Sunday 
three families joined us for a children's 
party and we "had a scavenger hunt for 
leaves, wild flowers, and birds' feathers 
before the twenty-one of us sat down for 
supper. I think you may surmise we all 
love it here, and find the bit of Victorian 
luxury-living quite to our liking. 

Ann and Sue are in school in Kingskettle, 
a mile from our home. I drive them in 
bad weather, but they seem to enjoy walking

and picking up little friends on the way, 
rather like the Pied Piper. Betsy and Paul 
attend Cuper (junior high) at Bell-Baxter, 
about six miles away. Paul is anxious to go 
to Glenalmond, a boarding school in the 
Highlands, and is studying with a tutor in 
order to meet the standards in Latin, algebra, 
geometry and French. I am hoping Ann will 
be accepted as a day girl in St. Leonard's 
next year. She too will have to pass an en- 
trance examination, but there are not so 
many Latin requirements for girls. 

Last summer we drove to the Continent, 
through Paris into Switzerland for a week, 
then on to Germany and up the Rhine. We 
were in Belgium and Holland briefly, and 
on the way home had a wee look at Lon- 
don for the children's benefit. This past 
winter we equipped ourselves with skis 
and spent several weekends in the High- 
lands. We are anticipating a short July 
vacation in Ireland — and are looking for- 
ward to summer visitors. Jeanne Revene 
and her Dad were here for a short visit in 
the Spring. 

Sorry I shall not join you for Reunion — 
but always Cheers to 1943 ■ — and do have

1945 

Sue Ross Westberg reports an impromp- 
tu early June Reunion: "One Tuesday 
morning, Barb Preuss Reynolds, June Ahn- 
er Gilroy and I took off for New Jersey. 
There we met Jeanne Towne Reavey, who 
with her five children has returned to 
Summit, after several years in Fort Madi- 
son, Iowa. Jane Burnham Eliason drove 
from Wilmington — and our little re- 
union group was complete. Amazingly 
the conversation has now switched from 
bottles and diapers to educating the chil- 
dren, volunteer work, civic obligations and 
trying to keep track of the children's ac- 
tivities. 

"Barb and I returned to Delaware with 
Jane. It had been eleven years since our 
last Wilmington get-together. Corkie 
(Rosamond McCorkindale Blizard), Carol 
Hauber Mitchell and Sloe (Sue Slocum 
Klingbeil) were with us then — and how 
we wish there might be a repeat. Jane en- 
tertained us royally — from a carefully 
guided city tour to a surprise dinner party. 
Among the guests was Jane Calderwood 
Price — it was a real treat to see her and 
get caught up with her comings and go- 
ings in the past 18 years. Our 'years out' 
continue to floor us all — we don't feel 
that old, and naturally are convinced we 
don't look that old either! ! ! 

"Late Friday afternoon I landed home 



in East Longmeadow to find something 
wrong with each of the children — none of 
it serious, and Jerri assured me everything 
had run beautifully. Of course, with Wen- 
dy now sixteen and Jane, thirteen, things 
should go well. 

"We-all talked of the 20th Reunion. Do 
hope there will be much enthusiasm, early 
organization and yea-great attendance."

Jacqueline Darcy, women's editor of the 
Gloucester (Mass.) Daily Times, returned 
in February from a month's visit to Brazil. 
With her permission, we quote from Part I 
of a nine-part account of Jackie's "Journey 
to Know Brazil": 

Samba — rapped out on car doors, on 
drums in the mountains behind the beaches. 
Gleaming university cities rising in the cen- 
ters of cities and on the plains. Affection- 
ate, hospitable people. In the northeast, 
the stores that sell small blue coffins. 

Conversations that always return to po- 
litical problems — and futebol. A close, 
warm, relaxed family life. Voodoo rites and 
jangadas, the fishing rafts which may bring 
in a day's catch of half a dozen fish. A 
thousand sweet and exotic fruits. The 
blind; the beggars who only sit and hope. 

Rio, perhaps the most beautiful city in 
the world, with its white crescent beaches 
accented by a backdrop of emerald green 
mountains rising sharply within the city 
itself. The handsome modern apartment 
buildings of Copacabana and Leblon and 
Flamengo with views of the Christ of the 
Andes and of the favelas, the slums where 
as many as 35,000 people cluster together 
on the side of a hill. 

Sao Paulo, modern and aggressive as 
Dallas or Chicago, its highways lined with 
compact industrial plants, much resem- 
bling our Route #128. 

Petropolis, former summer home of Dom 
Pedro II, emperor of Brazil, now a popu- 
lar resort, a pleasantly middle class com- 
munity, cool in its mountain setting. 

The unconquerable Amazon jungle; the 
verdant coastline. The northeast — trop- 
ical cities of stucco houses and palm trees, 
of uncertain water supply. 

Inland, against the background of jagged 
mountains, tiny farms on sandy soil, cac- 
tua; a remote, roiled pool that is at once 
used for laundry and is the source of cook- 
ing water. The dawn-to-dark fight against 
the dry land. And further inland, the ser- 
tao — the desert — where life and death 
are much the same thing. 

On TV Alfred Hitchcock and Hazel 
speaking Portuguese. Inflation that makes 
a bar of soap cost several dollars. A peo- 
ple who live Tor carnival, whose national

pride is soccer champions. Three crosses 
in the sand at the edge of a country road. 
Great natural resources. 

A man who walks with a friend, carrying 
a small blue coffin. Smoke rising in the 
backlands, as the land is burned free of 
trees and shrubs — and worth — for a 
year or two of yield. A roaring clanking 
auto industry, ballet and modern art, strik- 
ing architecture, ambitious and often con- 
flicting plans. 

All of this is Brazil, a country somewhat 
larger than continental United States, tak- 
ing up half the continent of South Amer- 
ica. This is the teeming, growing giant 
that has everything — and not enough of 
anything. It is a nation acutely aware of 
the U. S., with a constitution based on our 
own, yet a nation little known by us. 

Like the U. S., Brazil is a land of con- 
trasts and a melting pot. Today it faces — 
all at once — many of the problems our 
country has faced and solved over a period 
of 50 and more years. 

Last summer, 72 Brazilian students were 
brought here for a month-long "journey 
to know the United States." For five short 
days, 32 of them lived in Gloucester fam- 
ilies. The effect on both sides was pro- 
found. Out of this visit grew much mutual 
respect and affection, and a desire for more 
knowledge. 

Letters and books have been exchanged. 
The young students in Brazil who made 
the trip meet together and always the con- 
versation turns to the U.S. and friends 
here. In Recife, in the troubled northeast, 
the Everybody Club meets — as its equiv- 
alent club does on Cape Ann. 

Here we have talked often of "our 
young people," some 4,000 miles away in 
distance, weeks remote by mail, in a land 
we hardly know. Out of this interest and 
affection came my "journey to know 
Brazil." 



1947 

From the New Bedford (Mass.) Stan- 
dard-Times of March 25, 1963: "Ruth Red- 
den Decker, wife of the Rev. Stanley Deck- 
er, mother of two and a substitute teacher, 
is the current exhibitor at Russell Memo- 
rial Library in Acushnet. A former resident 
of Wellesley, Mrs. Decker was graduated 
from Lasell Junior College and from the 
Massachusetts College of Art with a bach- 
elor of fine arts degree. She studied draw- 
ing with Miss Beverly Hallam, oil and 
etching techniques with Otis Philbrick and 
watercolor under Arthur Corsini and 
Charles Demotropoulos — all artists and 
teachers in the Greater Boston area. Her 
work is in private collections in Wellesley, 
Dorchester, Weston and in New Hamp- 
shire and Delaware. She was one of the 
resident exhibitors in Acushnet's weeklong 
exhibit during the town's centennial ob- 
servance of Massachusetts Art Week, and 
has since exhibited yearly during Art 
Week." 



1949 

From Class Secretary, Joan DeGelleke 
Shrewsbury: "One of the happiest news 
items is that Shirley Simonton Foster 
was remarried on February 3, 1962 to 
Lewis C. Bancroft. They are living at 9 
Granite Road, Alapocas, Wilmington, Dela- 
ware. Just before Christmas I had a note 
from Ratsy telling of the birth of Thomas 
Edward Bancroft on December 18th. The 
twins, Faye and Fran, are almost six and 
Donald is eight. Their father, Ralph Fos- 
ter, died of leukemia in 1961. 

"Last September I enjoyed an over-nite 
visit with Pat Madden Nelson x-'49 in 
Hyannis. My husband's family have a sum- 
mer home in Little Compton, R. I., and now 
that I've discovered Pat is but two hours 
from there, I plan to go again. Pat and 
Bob have three handsome sons, Peter, 
John and Paul. Their summers are ter- 
ribly busy — swimming and sailing lessons 
and all the other wonderful things one does 
on the Cape. Bob is in business with Pat's 
father at Jack's Sport Shop, where they sell 
everything from bikes to boats. Pat gave 
me news of Joan Maynard Lockwood x-'49, 
whom I had 'lost' over the years. Joan is 
now Mrs. Eugene Tessier and lives at 59 
Hope Avenue, Warwick, R. I. 

"Usually see Evie Frye White and family

bv-the-sea. We rode the cable cars, visited 
Chinatown, toured Fisherman's Wharf — 
did all there was to do; saw all there was 
to see. During the spring vacation we 
went to Yosemite Valley — so peaceful 
and breath-taking; even the children were 
enchanted."

1952 

From The Portland, Maine Express, Feb-" 
ruary 8, 1963: 

"The circulation is going up all the 
time," gleefully reports the editor of one 
of the newer publications in the Greater 
Portland area. "Our equipment is old, 
but we have hopes of replacing it, o" mak- 
ing extensive repairs," is an optimistic 
note from the publisher. 

This many-hatted spokesman is Dolores 
(Eck) Ellis, who's keening Cape Elizabeth- 
eans around the Pond Cove district alert 
to the goings-on percolated by the PTA. 
The publication is nameless so far, but 
lack of a masthead makes for more room 
to apprize parents of the projects afoot. 

Dolores started her one-woman publica- 
tion last fall, thinking it was something 
she could do in her spare time at home. 
First casualty was her tried-and-no-longer- 
true typewriter. It lost its "A" after the 
first few editions. She uses the duplicating 
machine at school and it, though missing 
no parts, isn't as spry as it once was. 

Her circulation manager goes into ac- 
tion as she turns pressman and cranks out 
the news. He's five-year-old David Ellis and 
he gathers up the 800-900 sheets and 
stacks them in neat piles. The monthly 
news is rushed to the three buildings. 
Pond Cove Elementary South, Pond Cove 
Elementary and Town Hall. There's even 
a promotion manager on the staff. That's 
Douglas Ellis, 8 next month. He's the lad 
who thinks, and loudly tells, how great it 
is to have Mom and Pop dueting in the 
PTA. 

Ellis, who in public life is outside plant 
engineer for the Telephone Company, 
has more irons than drawing in the home 
fire. He attended Franklin Technical In- 
stitute in Boston for three years, and he is 
now an almost perennial night school stu- 
dent at UMP. He is in his fifth year of 
study leading to a degree in business ad- 
ministration. 

Dolores, who attended Lasell Junior Col- 
lege, is a music hobbyist and used to sing 
with the South Portland Community Cho- 
rus and appeared with the Portland Play- 
ers. But as long as she has irk on her fin- 
gers, the songs in her heart will have to be 
soloed around the Farm Hill Road home.

LASELL LEAVES 



I960 

The Boston HERALD has granted per- 
mission to reprint a June feature story, 
"Gentle Hands Heal Lima Girl's Heart." 
The accompanying picture of Susan Fietze 
Haase x-'60 and daughter, Karen, was 
taken by HERALD Staff Photographer 
Ronald Donovan. 

Given a new chance at life by the Chil- 
dren's Hospital Medical Center, a two-and- 
one-half-month-old baby girl leaves Bos- 
ton this morning on the first leg of a return 
trip to Lima, Peru — a journey her parents 
feared she would never make. 

The child, Karen Haase, daughter of 
Mr. and Mrs. Deitrich W. Haase of Lima, 
has spent almost half her brief life in the 
hospital. Struggling in an oxygen tent 
against three major heart defects, she was 
flown here from Peru more than a month 
ago. 

"When we left Lima, I didn't know 
whether we'd make it," Mrs. Haase told 
The Herald last night. 

Doctors in Lima had told the family that 
only the experience and special skills avail- 
able at Children's could save her life. 

With mother and child on the jet to 
New York from Peru were a maternal 
grandmother, Mrs. Hans Fietze of Monte- 
video, Uruguay, and Dr. Carolos Urquia- 
ga, a pediatrician from the British-Amer- 
ican Hospital in Lima. 

"We never knew if she would live from 
one minute to the next," Mrs. Haase, a Los 
Angeles-born former student at Lasell 
Junior College, told a reporter. 

During the flight, the child's cyanosis, or 
blueness from lack of oxygen in the blood, 
became worse. 

Her grandfather in Montevideo, head of 
customer engineering for IBM World 
Trade Corp. in South America, arranged 
for a company plane to meet them at 
Newark Airport and fly Karen direct to 
Boston. 

"She was in heart failure and desperate- 
ly ill when she arrived here," according to 
one of the doctors who worked on the case. 
"We had serious doubts that she would 
live through the night." 

At Children's, heart catheterization and 
other diagnostic procedures confirmed that 

I Karen was suffering from a ventricular 
septal defect (a hole allowing leakage be- 
tween the chambers of the heart) ; a patent 

i ductus arteriosus (which resulted in 
bleeding into the lungs), and transposi- 

i tion of the great vessels (a reversal of the 
positions of the aorta and the pulmonary). 



In the hyperbaric chamber at the hos- 
pital, Karen's chest was opened under 
pressures imposed to increase the oxygen 
supply to her body tissues. The chamber 
makes possible surgery that otherwise 
could not be attempted. 

The surgeons corrected the patent duc- 
tus arteriosus, preventing bleeding into the 
lungs, and narrowed the improperly con- 
nected pulmonary artery in order to in- 
crease the oxygen supply to Karen's body. 

In the present state of the art, surgery 
to correct the transposition is not at- 
tempted. It was thought wise not to at- 
tempt to close the sepal defects at this 
time, as they now alleviate to some extent 
the oxygen deficiency caused by the trans- 
position of the great vessels. 

But the operation unquestionably saved 
Karen's life, and growing with her in the 
next few years will be the surgical tech- 
niques that could be employed to solve her 
other heart problems.

FROM DR. TEWKSBURY 



Excerpts from remarks at 

Freshman Convocation 

September 19, 1963 



As travelers on this trip at Lasell, you should know from the outset about where 
we are bound in educational terms. Education is at once a simple and a complex 
process. We extend to you newly arrived on campus our major purpose, which is 
the enterprise of learning. Others have been on this journey before you; they, your 
instructors, have one chief interest. They would be counselors and friends in this 
period of your enlarging knowledge, skills and attitudes. The teacher who is only 
a drill sergeant or a fountain of wisdom, you will not find here. We all want to 
be helpful to your intellectual, social and spiritual maturing, but I must remind 
you that it is only you who will do your own learning and your own maturing. 

Together we seek to cultivate these several educational elements : Knowledge, a 
skill and good attitudes because society (spelled with a small "s") puts a high 
social value upon them as contributing to your personal effective living. These 
values are both intellectual as the possession of a cultivated person and social 
as the assets of a gracious individual. They are acquired by good example, by 
sympathetic suggestion and imitation, by personal experience out of one's own good 
taste, but they must be accepted in action in order for the individual to qualify as 
educated. 

During the next two years you will be introduced to what I shall call for want 
of a better term the fateful five years, for the next five years will typically see your 
future shaping itself in definite ways. Your formal education will be well ad- 
vanced or finished; statistics suggest that you will probably have chosen a husband 
and may have a baby; the location of your home and community may also have 
been decided. This is a sobering thought. All Lasell can do to open up the best 
possibilities in these life-long directions it stands eager to do. For your decisions 
in these life channels while not final are fateful. And you surely want to bring 
to them as much background knowledge and adult judgment as humanly possible.

Rare Moments 

Rare moments bring a spirit-rush of wings 

In breathless pause. 

When speech comes over-slow and strangely halting, 

It is because 

Their new-born baby minds so full of glories 

Try to reveal 

The marvel of that secret shining wonder 

We only feel. 

Too soon the swift surprise of earthly living 

Makes them forget, 

Though never do they lose those dreams celestial 

Without regret. 

How shall I dare to guide the steps that lately 

Asphodel trod? 

Ah, you will teach me, Little One from Heaven, 

The ways of God.

Mr. Walter R. Kattelle writes to the 
Alumnae Office: "In front of me on the 
desk is a picture of Nellie Feagles, whom 
I met a few days after her graduation from 
Lasell Seminary in*1897 and who has been 
my wife for 55 years. She left me on July 
22, 1963 after a very long illness. After 
graduation she and her mother stayed in 
Dr. Bragdon's house for two years, where 
I was a frequent caller. Nellie and her 
mother went abroad with one of the Lasell 
travel groups for a summer in Europe, and 
she attended Frau Dr. Hempel's Lan- 
guage School in Berlin. The following 
summer they joined a group on a trip to 
the North Cape and Russia, spent the win- 
ter in Berlin, and Nellie received a certifi- 
cate as a qualified teacher of German 
and French. We were married on October 
1, 1908 in Toledo, Ohio; lived in Auburn- 
dale for two years, later in Washington, 
D.C., and Riverside, Illinois. Since 1923 
we have resided in Upper Montclair, N.J. 
Nellie was much interested in the College 
and whenever we were in Auburndale, we 
always visited Lasell and our friends 
there."

Helen Campbell Rousseau sent regrets 
to the Southern California Lasell Club and 
adds "Sorry not to meet with you this 
year for I have always enjoyed the lunch- 
eon meetings. I am thankful to live in 
beautiful La Jolla surrounded by many 
flowers — the tuberous begonias and glox- 
inias are my favorites." 



1899 

After receiving the fall issue of "News 
from Lasell," Evelyn Ebert Allen wrote: 
"How surprised, and delighted I was to 
see the picture of us Lasell girls at the 
Mt. Pleasant House in the White Moun- 
tains. I was a member of the group and 
am seated on the balcony — fourth from 
the left. The trip was a wonderful expe- 
rience for a girl from Missouri and I was 
overwhelmed by the majestic beauty of 
the mountains in their fall colorings. The 
picture brought back many happy mem- 
ories."

Dr. Tewksbury: "Your kind invitation for 
luncheon on Alumnae Day 1963 is at 
hand. How happy I would be to accept 
it. However, I shall not be able to come 
East this summer. Two summers ago I 
was visiting my son in Boston. He drove 
me out to Auburndale one afternoon in 
late July. The front door to Bragdon 
Hall was unlocked and we went in and 
I saw again all the old rooms that I re- 
member so well and took several colored 
slides of them. My son took the enclosed

in the hall sixty years ago. Best wishes 
for the continued success of the College."

And from Mid Cary Hill: "I wish all 
1918'ers could have been with us at our 
45th Reunion. After 45 years, the old spirit 
was there and we all felt young and gay 
again ! 

"Your secretary is now home from 
wanderings in Europe and she and her 
new husband are settled in Belgrade Lakes, 
Maine. After being a resident of Winches- 
ter, Massachusetts, for 41 years, it was 
quite a change to move to a new com- 
munity, but I love it. We are situated just 
between two lakes — Great Pond at the 
rear and Long Pond in front, so we have a 
boat on both lakes. We have decided to 
build a camp on Long Pond not far from 
Elizabeth Arden's 'Maine Chance'. 

"Early in July our home was the gath- 
ering place for a group of 1918'ers. 
Lydia Adams Godsoe and husband, Har- 
riet Morris Kenney and husband, Kathryn 
Craig Rowand and husband, Barbara Mc- 
Lellan McCormick and husband, and Ruth

"At present my daughter, Janet Eaton 
Maynard (Lasell '45), her husband, and 
two daughters, Cary Eaton Maynard '16, 
and Becky Ayer Maynard '13, are visiting 
from St. Paul, Minnesota, where they have 
lived since December 1961. It is wonderful 
to have them here — and with my mother 
also here, we have four generations. 

My best to you all !"

Contributed by Harriette Case Bidwell: 

Now I sit me down in school 

Where praying is against the rule. 

For this great nation, under God 

Finds public mention of Him odd. 

Any prayer a class recites 

Now violates the Bill of Rights. 

Any time my head I bow 

Becomes a Federal matter now. 

Teach us of stars or pole and equator 

But make no mention of their Creator. 

Tell of exports in Denmark and Sweden 

But not one word on what Eve did in 

Eden. 
The law is specific, the law is precise 
Praying out loud is no longer nice. 
Praying aloud in a public hall 
Upsets believers in nothing at all. 
In silence alone can we meditate 
And if God should get the credit, great. 
This rule, however, has a gimmick in it, 
You've got to be finished in less than a 

minute. 
So all I ask is a minute of quiet 
If I feel like praying, then maybe I'll 

try it. 
If not, O Lord, this plea I make:

LASELL LEAVES 



1923 

Because for once the mails did not 
"get through" (I posted the Reunion 
Notes to Lasell from the old home- 
stead in Maine and they never ar- 
rived — necessitating my re-writing 
them), please watch for the February 
issue for ALL the news that is '23's 
News ! We had a wonderful time and 
only wish more of you could have 
been with us at Reunion. We have 
the "green light" for February's issue. 
As Sehora would say, "Hasta la vista."

Dear Girls: 

Make your plans now for the BIG Re- 
union Weekend — June 12, 13 and 14. 
Talk it up!!! 

See you there, 

Honey 

Helen Robson Hamill and husband have 
recently returned to their Florida home 
(3600 Alhambra Court, Coral Gables). 
Two wonderful vacation jaunts have taken 
them to Mexico and to the British Isles.

Helen Duncan Devereux. Had luncheon

Francisco on our return home." 



1928 
35 th Reunion 

Each Reunion is memorable for at least 
one different reason — this year had two 
distinctions: the first being the smallest 
attendance; the second, the selling of 
chances on two kimonos sent from Japan 
by Haru Tokito some years ago — from 
which the sum of $60 was raised for the 
Class of 1928's contribution to the Alum- 
nae Fund. 

Alumnae Day weather was perfect and 
our small group had a happy day, we 
missed you "absentees" very much, but the 
notes, letters and telegrams provided wel- 
comed reading. Your Secretary had an 
"off" year due to serious family sickness, 
so thanks to The Alumnae Office much of 
the detail work was carried along when I 
was unable to write the customary letters. 
Replies to your interesting reports will be 
sent — eventually. My thought now is 
that we must start concentrating right 
NOW so that our 40th will be a truly 
great event. For the present your chief 
interest will be in the collective news of 
classmates which I have digested briefly 
for this issue of the LEAVES. When I 
stop being a commuter and night worker, 
I will personally acknowledge each letter. 

Our Class President, Helen Cole Chalfant 
sent word from Miami that son David is 
attending Cornell; Constance married; and 
married son Edward about to be ordained 
an Episcopal minister. Helen has been 
extremely active in the Florida alumnae 
group. Evelyn Bostel Dotterer enclosed a 
fine family photograph with notations that 
her three daughters are Norey, in high 
school; Nina, a student at Lasell; and 
Nancy, a senior at Boston University. 
We did miss Evelyn's usual presence. 
Dorothy Plummer Edmunds was soon to 
leave for a European vacation and men- 
tioned that one daughter, Ann, is married 
to a lawyer in Arizona; Sherry is attending 
Northwestern University; and unmarried 
Jeff has just completed his studies at Deni- 
son. (Dixie — you must come to one 
Reunion — make it the 40th!) Marjorie 
Taylor Flemings has established a fine 
catering service and a Gourmet Shop in 
Clearwater, Florida — a good enough rea-

son for not being able to come North. Her 
four children are married and there are 
four grandchildren. She has moved to 611 
North Fort Harrison Avenue in Clear- 
water. 

Catherine Worrall Flint came to Au- 
burndale in 1962 for 1927's Reunion. This 
year she wrote to us as Dean of Girls at 
Principia in St. Louis, a position which 
she thoroughly enjoys. Her daughter, with 
three grandchildren, live near Philadelphia, 
and Kitty's Wall Street business man is son 
William. Greetings from Detroit came 
with Kathryn Forgey's note and message. 
Kay, whose father lived to an active age 
of 91, continues to live in the family 
home. She was looking ahead to a mid- 
summer vacation in Portland (Maine) and 
and a visit with Muriel Hagerthy Murray 
'29. Evelyn Douglas Hooper missed her 
first reunion due to sickness. Her whirl- 
wind trip to visit the children — the 
married and the students — started from 
Hamden (Conn.) instead of Auburndale. 
Margaret Basley Irwin telephoned that 
she keeps very busy with her work — and 
we know what an active gal she is. This 
was Peg's first "miss" too. Jeanette Allen 
Love sent greetings but being the sweet, 
quiet person she is, she didn't tell what a 
busy and wonderful mother she is to Les- 
lie, Julie and Melanie — the most attrac- 
tive Love's. 

Phoebe Dotten Low was accompanied 
by daughter, Barbara, who, as the "young- 



est" class member present, had the dis- 
tinction of drawing the winning numbers 
for the kimonos. A recent graduate of 
Vermont College, Barbara was preparing 
for her late summer wedding to Frederick 
Sloder, Jr. Phoebe's son, Richard, pre- 
pared at Maine Maritime Academy for his 
position with the American Export Lines. 
Marjorie Winslow MacCuspie not only 
came to Reunion but invited the three 
lone survivors at day's end to visit her 
home in Waban. Midge's children are do- 
ing various interesting things — eldest 
daughter, Jeanne, a secretary; and Joanne, 
a student at Garland Junior College, has 
a major interest in art under the super- 
vision of Lasell's former instructor, Kay 
Peterson Parker. 

Mary Pryor Miller wrote her message 
from Lafayette, N. J., and commented on 
her enjoyment of three step-children and 
six step-grandchildren. Mary also sent 
the very sad news of the death of Helene 
Salzenstein Hinds after several years of 
severe illness. We shall remember Helene 
with true affection and send heartfelt sym- 
pathy to her daughter, Ann, and family. 
Margaret Newman, our loyal standby, 
brought much merriment and news, en- 
joyable stories of her travels and photog- 
raphy, in which she has a keen interest. 
For twenty-two years Margaret has been a 
member of the Mechanical Engineering 
Department of Bethlehem Steel Company 
in Quincy. We were truly sorry Janet 
Scott Morse was unable to persuade a 
few classmates to be her house guests for 
the weekend — neither they nor Janet 
joined us. We also missed the latest news 
of Janet's talented and married daughter.

Evelyn Ladd Rublee '28 and 
husband Bill 



Evelyn Ladd Rublee sent a last minute 
cancellation — but did enclose a snapshot 
of herself with husband Bill. Daughter 
Cynthia, a graduate nurse of Beverly Hos- 
pital, now is married and has two young 
daughters. Gertrude Wagner is very active 
in the National Secretaries Association, 
serving as a member of the International 
Finance Committee. Trudy plans to attend 
a 1964 convention at the new Hotel Ameri- 
cana and promises to visit the College. 
Dorothy Frazer Wahl writes that Suzanne 
is married and daughter Barbara is a jun- 
ior at Millersville State College. Peggy 
Woods Brown sent a fine report and en- 
closed a photo showing Peggy and husband 
at the time of a special anniversary cele- 
bration at the bank. Peggy's son, Major 
Arnold Wood Brown of the Air Force, 
is stationed in Albuquerque. 

Our 35th was "First" Reunion for Edith 
Hussey Adams, now a Sudbury neighbor. 
Her husband is affiliated with General 
Radio and Kipling, Jr. is with The Nor- 
ton Company in Worcester. John is a stu- 
dent at the University of Chicago. Dolly 
Goodwin Culver, always a gay addition 
to our meetings, only deserted us in the 
afternoon to help at a church affair. She 
even left the lovely cool sea breezes at 
her summer home to visit with us — and 
this time didn't dash to the telephone to 
find out if she were a grandmother ! A 
telegram arrived from Joan Johnson Dori- 
ot and with it the fine news that her 
daughter was graduating from the Phoenix 
(Ariz.) High School with high distinction. 



Natalie Robbe Hemmett is enjoying secre- 
tarial work at Warner-Chilcott in Morris 
Plains. Son Roland, Jr., a track star, plans 
to study engineering. Josephine Laughton 
Hopkins writes the most interesting let- 
ters. This was a first "miss" for Jo — but 
with good reason. She is active in many 
community projects — the most time- 
consuming at the moment is the Barsto 
Restoration — a New Jersey Sturbridge! 

We continued to hope there would be 
a last-minute "I'm coming" from Barbara 
Lawson — a happy, contented New Yorker 
— active in church work and on music 
committees. One of the most interesting 
of letters came from Helen Hawes Loomis 
telling of her doings and of the family; 
and the bravest of letters, for Hawsey was 
writing from the hospital, where she was 
being forced "to be lazy." (Over activity 
had been her downfall). She is one of 
the busiest of Skowhegan women — a 
member of various community groups and 
clubs, a reporter for the Bangor Daily 
News, and chairman of the 1963 Easter 
Seal Drive. 

My sincere thanks to each of you who 
answered our 1963 Reunion letter ■ — and 
to those of you who have not yet filled 
in the questionnaire — do it today. 

Best good wishes for the Holiday 
Season.

Frances Smith Miller reports: "At last I 
have some news for the Class of '30 sent 
to me by Joan Collier Cooper. Her daugh- 
ter, Carolyn Cooper, was graduated with 
honors in June from Framingham State 
Teachers College. She was one of two 
students in the Home Economics Depart- 
ment to be awarded membership in 'Who's 
Who Among Students in American Uni- 
versities and Colleges for the year 1962- 
63.' Later in June she became the bride 
of Paul E. Kelley at the Center Congrega- 
tional Church in Lynnfield. Mr. Kelley is 
a student at Bangor Theological Seminary, 
Bangor, Maine. While he completes his 
studies, Carolyn will teach Home Econom- 
ics at Bangor High School. 

Best wishes and much happiness to Car- 
olyn from the Class of '30. Those attending 
our 30th reunion will remember what a 
lovely and beautiful girl she was for she 
came with her mother to enjoy the day 
with us."

LASELL LEAVES 



1933 

June 8, on campus, proved a rewarding 
day to the eight girls and guests who as- 
sembled under the Big Tent. We were 
entertained by the Lamp Lighters and the 
Song Fest winne s of Converse, cooled by 
a delightful breeze, and fed in nostalgic 
Lasell style. After lunch we explored the 
new luxurious Lasell and saw again a pret- 
ty queen crowned in the Crow's Nest, and 
witnessed the cornerstone laying of yet 
another new building. 

Those who "made it" were Bunny Bar- 
dua Childs, Sis Burwell and her mother, 
Grace Dunne Walker, Shirley Gould 
Chesebro, Libby Mclntire Bennert, "Og- 
gie" Ogden Hayes, Char Phillips Wilkins, 
Nancy Skiff and Ruth Stafford Clark and 
daughter, Jennie. 

Hazel Merritt Bliven, and Marjorie 
Walker joined us at The Pillars for a 
very gay informal dinner. We had as our 
special guest ; our "adopted" classmate. 
Marge MacClymon '32. We missed all of 
you who "couldn't make it," and hope you 
will be present at our next reunion. 

Shirley Gould Chesebro, reunion chair- 
man, has agreed to take on the job again 
for 1968. 

From questionnaires we learn that Bette 
Andrews York moved into a new home 
at 5 Crestview Drive, North Haven, Conn, 
last year, and in May, Eunice Andrews 
Brooks, her twin, moved across the street 
from her. Bette's daughter, Sally, attends 
The MacDuffie School in Springfield, and 
her son, Randy, entered junior high this 
fall. 

Eunice Andrews Brooks' daughter, Su- 
san, graduated from Lasell in June '62. 
She is completing her nursing course and 
will receive her R.N. in September. Jeff, 
her son, attends Cheshire Academy. 

A phone call to Faith Barber Brandt 
found her involved in school activities. 
Her children, Ricki and Linda, are stu- 
dents at Kingswood and Oxford Schools 
in Hartford, Conn. 

Helen Bardua Childs traveled to the 
Midwest last summer, after swinging down 
through Virginia and over the Skyline 
Drive on her way to Principia College to 
see her oldest son, Richard, graduate. 
Last winter Bunny had "five glorious 
weeks in Florida, just taking in the whole 
state and seeing all the sights." She is an 
active church worker, a Christian Science 
practitioner, and serves on the board of a 
Christian Science Nursing home. Bunny 
has three children, Richard, Rosalind, and 
Randall. 

Helen Breed Solberg writes that her 
twenty-year-old son, Kristian, is doing 




Mary Hood Harney 
Dorothy Guest '33 

landscape gardening in the Boston area. 
Daughter Linda-Marie entered high school 
this fall. 

We again want to thank Helen (Sis) 
Burwell for being "our gal Friday" 
reunion-wise. Sis is with the Department 
of Education in Hartford, Conn. 

Laura Dietz Rudginsky writes, "Went 
to Arizona this past winter and stayed 
in Scottsdale, Phoenix, and Tucson for a 
month. I am presently teaching language 
training (remedial reading), spelling, com- 
prehension, etc. at two of the public 
schools in Newton, and Beaver Country 
Day School in Chestnut Hill." Laura saw 
Lillian Druker Feingold and her husband 
in New York on the April 8th weekend. 

Margaret Dubois Loukes took a won- 
derful seven-week trip to the Pacific Is- 
lands in 1961. The next year she remod- 
eled a school house, incorporating modern 
conveniences with antique charm. 

Craig, 21; John, 17; and Sara, 13 are 
Grace Dunne Walker's three. We all en- 
enjoyed the snaps of them, which she 
brought to the reunion and also the dis- 
tant view of her Herefords. Grace is a 
substitute teacher, member of the school 
board, and the Doctor's assistant. 

Conflicting graduation dates, Steffi from 
Penn State University and Terry from 
Phillips Academy, kept Barbie Erickson 
Rogers from reunion. Barbara is again an 
active realtor.

John is married and lives in Albany, New. 
York. Gordon is at Northeastern Univer- 
sity and Nancy 15 is a member of the 
Class of 1963 at Vermont College. 

Dorothy Guest Harney flew to Switzer- 
land in June, 1961, and with a friend 
toured Switzerland and Germany in a 
Volkswagen. "It was fabulous." Her 
daughter, Mary, has completed her fresh- 
man year at Brenan College in Gainesville, 
Georgia. 

Jeanne Heilig Noack writes, "My fam- 
ily, home, and new granddaughter keep 
me well occupied. Jack and I took a jet 
to Miami during Easter week to visit my 
brother whom I hadn't seen for six 
years. It was an enjoyable respite from 
this cold Michigan weather. In the sum- 
mer of I960 we came East and had a de- 
lightful visit with Ada Smith Falkenholm 
x-'32, in Middletown, R. I. Wilma Silver- 
nail sent me a picture of the last reunion, 
but I had to return it without being able 
to identify everyone." Jeanne's children 
are Cynthia Noack Greensmith, mother of 
Christy Ann, four months, and Jack, 13. 

Mary Hill Davis has recently returned 
from Florida. Mary has two children, 
Steven, 23, and a married daughter, Janet 
Davis Peterson. 

Helen Joyce Cardozo was attending her 
niece's wedding on our reunion day. Per- 
haps we shall see her in 1968? Her 
daughter, Joyce, is an occupational ther- 
apist at the Massachusetts Department of 
Mental Health in Waltham. Helen still 
takes her annual Canadian vacation. Her 
hobby is ceramics. She is active in the 
Eastern Star, and is Past Worthy Ma- 
tron, Deputy Grand Marshall, and Sec- 
retary. 

Our newest grandmother, Hazel Merritt 
Bliven, had the exciting news of her first 
grandchild's birth to tell us at reunion. 
The baby was so new that it hadn't been 
named. Joan Bliven Horskin, Hazel's 
daughter, is the baby's mother. Hazel's 
son, David, is a first lieutenant with the 
114th Air Mobile Company, and is flying 
helicopters in Viet Nam. 

Libby Mclntire Bennert was chauf- 
feured to our reunion by her son Harry, 
and his wife, giving us an opportunity 
to meet the future Dr. and Mrs. Bennert 
Jr. Harry graduated from Boston Uni- 
versity Medical School later in June. Lib- 
by's daughter, Susan LaFrance, was a 
sociologist at New Haven Hospital, while 
her husband attended Yale Law School, 
from which he graduated in June. After 
Libby attended the D.A.R. Continental 
Congress this year in Washington, she 



was joined by her husband and son for a 
trip to Williamsburg, Virginia Beach, and 
the Skyline Drive. Libby is chairman for 
the Hospital Cart, and a Veterans Ad- 
ministration gray lady. 

Louise Newell Audette's son, Dane, 23, 
is located at Lowry Air Force Base, Den- 
ver, Colorado. "He is completing a course 
in electronics, hoping to combine that 
with his college degree in business man- 
agement, after three more years of Air 
Force duty," Louise writes. "We are all 
very proud of Linda, 21, a senior at Bos- 
ton University majoring in English Litera- 
ture. She continues to be on the Dean's 
list with a 3.8 average, and has received 
the Phi Beta Kappa scholarship for the 
coming year. This summer she is working 
part-time in an office at Boston University, 
and taking two courses, which will relieve 
her schedule next year for extra research. 
As her hobby is playing the recorder, I 
'rope her in' to play at church with me 
when she gets home. I am still organist 
at Central Church and have to serve as 
choir director much of the time. Also 
sing with a choral group in Manchester." 
Louise is president of the women's group 
at church, has a part-time job in a drug 
store, and manages her various properties. 
She and her daughter visited Prince Ed- 
ward Island last fall.

In I960 she visited Europe, returning via 
the S.S. "United States." She also visited 
North Carolina that year. In 1961 she 
visited Chicago, Las Vegas, California, and 
Canada. The year 1962 found her in Flor-

the Morton Hospital women's auxiliary, a 
member of the Raynham planning board, 
and on the board of the women's auxiliary 
of the Lakeville Hospital. 

Nancy Skiff returned from her Florida 
vacation in Ft. Lauderdale in time for 
reunion. She was the house guest of Char 
Wilkins for the occasion. 

Harriet Smith Rawson writes, "Sorry 
we have to travel to West Virginia to 
pick up our son, Thomas, in college, so 
will be unable to attend the reunion." 
Harriet is working again, after 25 years, 
in an attorney's office, and "loves it." She 
has two granddaughters, the children of 
Sarah Rawson Wardwell. 

Barbara Stover Van De Bogert's daugh-

volunteer work." 

Another of our grandmothers with five 
grandchildren is Millicent Thomson Ham- 
mer. These are the children of Spot's 
daughters, Lee and Bonnie. Spot writes, 
"This February, Jack and I went to Jamaica 
for eight days, Haiti for three days, and 
St. Thomas for two weeks — perfectly 
wonderful. We bought a lot there for the 
future." 

During dinner Marjorie Walker told us 
a bit of the interesting and important 
work she is doing with the government. 

Like many classmates, my life revolves 
around the children. Jeanne is in junior 
high, and this past year became a first 
class Scout with the usual sash of achieve- 
ment badges. She won an award for gen- 
eral scholastic honors, and one for excel- 
lence in the school orchestra. Ken is a cub 
scout, and an Indian on the farm team ■ — 
and off it, too. This spring we explored 
the Outer Banks of North Carolina from 
our home base at Nags Head. On our 
return trip North we revisited Williams- 
burg. Last fall I was a page at our State 
D. A. R. convention. 

It is never too late to return your ques- 
tionnaire, or a note to me. So please send 
it along, if you haven't already done so. 

It was a great, though small reunion. 
Do "try a little harder" to be at the next 
one.

From Florence Lebrecht Rourke: "My

to visit Lasell before too long. Am most 
anxious to contact Virginia Leahy Ber-

1935 

On June 26, 1963 David Ordway and 
Barbara Ordway Brewer were hosts at a 
party honoring their parents, Mr. and 
Mrs. Earl H. Ordway, on the occasion of 
their 50th wedding anniversary. 

Neighbors, friends and relatives gathered 
for an informal buffet in the Ordway's 
yard and were greeted by Mr. and Mrs. 
Ordway, Barbara, David, David's wife, 
Carol, and the four grandchildren. Many 
flowers, gifts and congratulatory messages 
made it a very happy occasion; the Trus- 
tees presented Mr. Ordway with a Pola- 
roid color camera. 

Mr. Ordway has been affiliated with 
the College since 1911, as faculty member, 
superintendent of grounds, coach of crew 
and as a member of the Board of Trus- 
tees. 

Barbara Ordway Brewer reports "sparse 
squeezings from the thin juice of 1935:" 

While vacationing in Florida with 
daughter Bonnie this fall, I telephoned 
Martha Parsons Lindsay, just returned 
from a summer in Maine. Martha's older 
son, Stephen, will be a freshman at St. 
Petersburg Junior College, where Roberta 
Morrill Buchanan is director of the Speech 
Department. 

In April, Eleanor Ramsdell Stauffer 
dropped in for a brief visit. Eleanor was 
accompanied by son Charles and daughter- 
in-law Jane. Charles was graduated in 
June from St. Lawrence College, where 
his father is head of the Chemistry De- 
partment. Eleanor was a house guest of 
Jeanette White Eaton x-'35. 

While attending a D.A.R. convention in 
Washington, Puffy Selby Guerry took time 
out for a visit with Polly Philbrick 
Gritz. Puffy's daughter, Linda x-'62, a 
recent graduate of Morse Business College 
in Hartford, was married in April to 
Frederick M. Dotson of Simsbury. 

August visitors on campus were Kay 
Peck Dietler and family. 

To Cindy King Haskins from Thelma 
Larkin Richardson: 

While visiting daughter Louise at Nas- 
son College last year, I met Miss Mac 



McClelland — we greeted each other with 
gusto — then ran smack into Lil Tobias 
Richmyer, whose son has been accepted at 
Nasson. My "baby" boy (26 years) is a 
helicopter pilot with the Army. He and 
his wife and their three little ones are at 
Fort Belvoir, Virginia. He came for a 
short visit in June, landed in a 'copter' in 
the backyard and I thought the Martians 
had really come for me! Daughter Louise 
was a finalist in the Miss Massachusetts 
contest this year and is now studying at 
the University of New Hampshire. 

Haven't seen "Hawkshaw" (Diane Gard- 
ner Wetherell), but am looking forward 
to her Christmas note. Diane is living on 
Long Island; her son is a student at 
Cornell. I occasionally catch a quick 
glimpse of Phyl Atkinson Stone '34 at one 
of the nearby shopping centers, and en-

Bili Baxter Perkins '36 writes to Miss 
McClelland from the Casa-Mar Apartments, 
6006 Midnight Pass Road, Siesta Key 
in Sarasota, Florida: 

"Ray and I have recently been appointed 
Resident Managers of the Casa Mar — and 
we are looking forward to seeing many 
New England friends before the winter 
is over. 

"On June 2d we started on our first 
vacation trip in five years — had a won- 
derful time visiting many new spots and 
revisiting places we particularly enjoyed 
on former vacations. Starting in Arizona, 
we stopped at Phoenix, Scottsdale and 
Tucson. Then were almost stranded in 
the Papago Indian Reservation near the 
Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument 
near the Mexican border. Those tremen- 
dous saguaro with limbs going in all di- 
rections — no two alike — continually 
fascinated us. "We continued on thru the 
Imperial Valley with its lush crops, thanks 
to tremendous irrigation fields — sugar 
beets and delicious white seedless grapes 
were being harvested by the truckload. 

"In Colorado, breathtaking rides over 
the Royal Gorge, Rim of the World Drive, 
Trail Ridge Road (Elevation 14,183 ft. in 
a snowstorm) over the Continental Divide 
at Bethoud and again at Loveland Pass, 
the beautiful Broadmoor sitting majes- 
tically aloof in a torrential thunder storm 
with lightning dancing around the moun- 
tain tops, the quiet splendor of Garden of

the Gods before breakfast, attending open- 
ing night of the '63 season of the Melo- 
drama in the Imperial Hotel in the gold- 
mining town of Cripple Creek are all out- 
standing memories. 

"Who can adequately describe delicate 
Bryce with its unbelievable multitude of 
timeless carving, or staunch Zion over- 
powering to the extent that one feels 
small and insignificant, or the Grand Can- 
yon with its everchanging hues stretching 
seemingly endlessly before one. 

"A day spent at Disneyland transported 
us to the dangerous Amazon where our 
skilled boatman piloted us safely through 
herds of rhinos and treated us to elephants 
bathing at the water's edge, pointed out 
wildebeeste, and lions lurking in the jun- 
gles nearby. We relived the days of the 
river boats and steinwheelers with a ride 
on the Mark Twain, saw Indian ceremonial 
dances, burning villages, and were trans- 
ported into Tomorrow land with a ride 
on the monorail, cars without wheels mov- 
ing by air pressure, the Monsanto House 
of Tomorrow. 

"Then to the sophisticated world of 
Palm Springs — Jolie Gabor's store and 
home, Dinah Shore speeding down the 
road in front of us, Bing Crosby's luxuri- 
ous trailer park, three visits to the Racquet 
Club where Charlie Farrell was most gra- 
cious to us. 

"Yosemite, Sequoia, and driving out of 
Kings Canyon after dark on a narrow, 
twisting road with no guard rails, climb- 
ing something like 5000 ft. in 15 miles. 
Gentle, beautiful deer, but no bear (such 
a disappointment). Lassen — the volcano 
in the U. S. which erupted as late as 1917 
■ — and the bubbling hot pots, the devas- 
tated area, the lava beds — all were such 
a contrast to the indescribably blue and 
peaceful water of Crater Lake surrounded 
by a beautiful 27 mile drive around the 
crater rim, were more fascinating trips. 

"Joshua Tree National Monument in the 
high dessert where we seemed to be the 
only people around. How different from 
Las Vegas where people never sleep. 
We've been there twice now and haven't 
bet a nickel yet. Can't understand how 
people can throw their money away — but 
it was fascinating to watch them all do it. 
The neon lights are truly a sight to see at 
night — and the interior of the hotels are 
really beautifully decorated. Good food 
is relatively inexpensive as is the enter- 
tainment. 

"And then, the Olympic Peninsula, 
which is about only 5% developed, trans- 
ported us to an entirely new world. We 
drove over to Neah Bay, so now we have 
been in the four most distant corners of 



the contiguous' United States. The rain 
forest with its tremendous lush, green 
growth seemed so tropical and such a 
contrast to Mt. Olympus crowned with 
glaciers — and all so near. Fascinating 
country. It was while we were in Port 
Angeles waiting to sail to Victoria, B. C, 
Canada, that we got word to hurry back 
to Sarasota. However, we did go on to 
Victoria for one night. Then on to Van- 
couver, for another night. We had planned 
to come across Canada all the way on the 
new Trans-Canada Highway on to Lake 
Louise — only because we were to pick 
up new license plates there. (Ours had 
been stolen and we had asked the replace- 
ments to be sent there) . Victoria and 
Lake Louise are two spots among many 
that we want to go back and spend more 
time. We did manage to arrive at the 
Chateau at Lake Louise early enough in the 
afternoon to go for a canoe ride on the 
beautiful green lake before dinner. From 
there on it was just rush, rush, rush to get 
back and it sort of ended our sight-seeing 
and poking." 



1937 

Barbara Potter Fyfe's husband Bill was 
appointed Administrator of St. Johnsbury 
Hospital in St. Johnsbury, Vermont. Chosen 
from a field of 15 candidates by the hospital 
board of directors, Bill assumed his duties 
on November 11th. Education is of pri- 
mary interest to the Fyfe offspring; John is 
a junior at the University of Vermont, 
Andrea, a senior at Westbrook Junior Col- 
lege, Portland, Maine and William, a stu- 
dent at the Summer Street School. 

After a twenty-six year absence, Eliza- 
beth Tracy Campbell returned to campus 
in May of this year. From her home in 
Augusta, Georgia, she traveled East and, 
while here, renewed old acquaintances at 
the College. 

Florence Stetson Pipes, a past president 
of the Southern California Club, sends this 
word from the State of Florida: "We have 
come to Fort Lauderdale to care for my 
invalid father. Am anxious to contact the 
local club — and former Lasell school- 
mates." Florence has been successful with 
a contact — she and Corinne Gossweiler 
Ross have visited via telephone and in 
person. The Fort Lauderdale address for 
Florence is 54l Lido Drive. 

Adrienne Smith Stone '23 reports that 
her son, George V. Stone, husband of Dor- 
othy Acuff, has been elected president 
of Bulkley Dunston Linde Lathrop, Inc., 
New York City.

Dinner at The Pillars for 1938 
We find: Myrtle Sylvester, Muriel 
Schmidt, Jean Randall, Evie Bang, Jane 
Sherman, Joanne Bohaker, Dorothy 
Keyes, Betty Jackson, Betty Shultz, 
Kay Dempsey, Peg Jones, Rosemary 
Pegnam, Mildred Birchard, Olive Boyn- 
ton, Mim Royce and Arlene Wishart. 
Do you??? 



Attending 1938's luncheon reunion on 
campus were: Peg Jones Howry, Fay Wad- 
hams Smith, Evelyn Bang, Mildred Royce 
Moffett, Ruth Meighan Gillette, Elizabeth 
Black Boynton, Jane Sherman O'Brien, 
Ritamae Hinchlifife Cusker, Olive Boynton 
Garron, Constance Hatch Herron, Alice 
Seidler, Joanne Bohaker Smith, Elizabeth 
Leland Kibbe, Doris Morin Hackett, Doro- 
thy Keyes, Jean Randall Dockham, Mildred 
Birchard Pentheny, Arlene Wishart Syl- 
vester. 

From the questionnaires it seems we 
have certainly had our share of widow- 
hood, but maybe it is the United States 
average. As a class we haven't been very 
divorce prone and some of the girls have 
really large families — five, six, and even 
seven children. They are an active crowd, 
doing more than their share of community 
service and church work. 

Unable to come to Auburndale, Eliza- 
beth Gahan Burbank, Fran Stephen How- 
ells, Marie Bruns Dodge, Carol Myers 
Lowe, and husbands convened at Madi- 
son, Connecticut, for a weekend Reunion 
of their own. 

Renie adds: "Our family enjoyed a 
weekend of skiing last New Year's. Bill 
(18) enters the University of Denver in 
September; Lee (16), a junior at the 
MacDuffie School. Betsy (22), a secretary 
and Jr. League Volunteer Worker, is look- 
ing forward to wedding bells. Dan and I 
enjoyed a spring vacation in Bermuda and 
Jamaica, and are now busy with planning 
for a new home here in Longmeadow. 



Trithena McFarland Argo's hobbies and 
current activities include gardening, vol- 
unteer work at the hospital, golf (which 
she took up five years ago in defense of 
being a golf widow and loves it). Then 
of course there is always knitting and 
reading. Tri sends her love to all '38ers. 

Mim Nye Newcomb was unable to at- 
tend the reunion because it conflicted with 
her husband's graduation from Veterinary 
School of Michigan University. They 
have three daughters, one of whom attends 
Lesley College and entertains as a folk- 
singer in the Boston area. 

The Class extends sincere sympathy to 
Audrey Spiller Smalley, whose husband 
passed away in January 1963. Audrey has 
a son and daughter, Stephen and Sandra. 

Dorothy Schwarz Foster sent regrets. 
Her seven children are Eric, 19, Dorothy 
Joan, 18, Douglas Alan, 16, Jack Martin, 
15, Judith Ann, 12, Mabel Crawford, 9, 
and Jeffrey Wayne, 8. 

Nancy Carruthers Bicknell sent her best 
wishes for a happy day to all. Nancy's two 
sons are Bruce, 21, and Brian, 19- 

Florence Rawson Skitt gave priority to 
son Bill's college graduation. Kenneth is 
attending Bryant College in Providence, 
and Florence continues to hope her one 
and only daughter (there are five sons) 
will be a Lasell candidate.

Florence Evans McLaughlin has re- 
quested a transcript of her Lasell record 
with the hope that "it still isn't too late 
to work towards a degree in Primary Edu- 
cation with a major in Library Science so 
that I may someday qualify as a school 
librarian. For the benefit of 1940 class- 
mates may I also add this note of informa- 
tion. My husband, Captain M. W. Mc- 
Laughlin, USMC, and myself with our 
three daughters have been stationed from 
coast to coast and in Hawaii for twenty 
years plus. Our daughter Nancy is a 
sophomore at Campbell College in North 
Carolina. Audrey and Sally attend the 
base high school." 

"We are always glad to share news of 
Jean Church Smith x-'40. Her daugh- 
ter, Sandra Jahns, a June graduate of the 
Sarah Dix Hamlin Girl's School in San 
Francisco, is attending the College of Ar- 
chitecture at the University of Colorado. 
Sandra, granddaughter of the late Isabelle 
Bowers Church '03, will make her debut 
at the Peacock Gap Country Club in Marin 
County (California) in December. 

Elisabeth Schaye, 18-year-old daughter 
of Adele Friedstein, is a freshman at 
Chatham College. Adele's two sons are 
Jim, Jr., 14, and Paul, 10. 



Eleanore Loeffler Olsen's reason for not 
joining us: daughter Morna "being con- 
firmed"; Clinton's "Harvard Dental Re- 
union." 

Eleanor Pierce Puffer was busily in- 
volved in a hospital benefit fair on Alum- 
nae Day. 

Betty Yeuell Collins keeps in touch with 
Lasell and Alumnae via the Pittsburgh 
Club. Betty's daughter Bobbe has applied 
to Lasell for September 1964. 

Dot Woodard Grindell wrote to Arlene 
Wishart Sylvester "Our summer business 
keeps us close to home at this time of year. 
Sorry I will not be able to join you gals. 
Our daughter Jean has been accepted at 
Colby College for next year; Paul is ready 
for high school." 

Ruth Bull Reid was "still in the cleanup 
stage — fire did considerable damage to 
the first floor of our home in the late 
spring." Ruth's son Robert is eleven years 
old. 

Dinner at the Pillars closed out our 
25th Reunion. It was a very happy oc- 
casion — we urge more of you to join us 
in 1968.

1941 

From Ginny DeNyse: 

Had a wonderful few days with Mary 
Doig Nicholson in South Dartmouth. No 
cross-country bike rides for us, but it was 
great fun to try our hand at the forgotten 
art of bicycling. 

Received a letter from Bette McGrath 
Brown — It's been a busy year fo~ Bette: 
lending moral support to sons Jeff and 
Rob in Little League, vacationing this sum- 
mer in Michigan, traveling with her hus- 
band to San Francisco for the U. S. Sav- 
ings and Loan convention, planning a trip 
to Washington, D. C. next March for the 
American Savings and Loan convention 
and last, but not least, delivering a paper 
entitled "An Objective Look at the Unit- 
ed Nations" to the Hamilton (Ohio) Wom- 
en's Club this fall." 

Ginny enclosed a copy of Bette's opus 
on the U. N. The LEAVES regrets that her 
entire address cannot be included but 
excerpts from this provocative study are 
in order. A letter to the editor of the 
local newspaper attracted Bette's atten- 
tion — The letter decried the "relentless 
attacks upon the U. N.," querying readers, 
"What better solution do you offer to the 
U. N.?" Bette took pen in hand, analyzed 
the organization, functions, and effective- 
ness of the disputed world body and of- 
fered the following suggestion: "The al- 
ternative to the United Nations would be 
a new World Government consisting of 
free world countries living under consti- 
tutions similar to our own. The World 
Government would have a constitution 
guaranteeing to all member countries 
the same rights which we exercise in this 
country as free men and women. Some 
people would say that we would be divid- 
ing the world into two factions and this 
is true because we then would be recog- 
nizing the reality that the world is now 
half free and half slave. It is because we 
have failed to recognize this reality for the 
past eighteen years that we find one-third 
of the world's population living under 
Communism. As an example: If we walk 
out into the streets unarmed, knowing 
there is a mad dog in the neighborhood, 
we are not recognizing reality and have 
only ourselves to blame. If, on the other 
hand, we alert our friends, form an armed 
posse, and quarantine the dog, we are 
recognizing a real danger and behaving in 
a rational manner. In the past eighteen 
years, we have not quarantined the dog, 
we have not joined with our friends, and 
the dog has bitten and enslaved one-third 
of the population of this world." In clos- 
ing, Bette said to the Club: "What I hope

Pat Kieser spent two weeks roughing 
it on a river trip through Glen Canyon 
of the Colorado River. "I hiked way up 
many side canyons coming down to the 
Colorado to see the Moki Indian cliff 
dwellings. Camped on sandbars at night; 
if you miss one, take the next, as there's 
no going back with that current ! Hiked 
way up Twilight Canyon, formed by 
storms sweeping through. Experienced a 
terrible sandstorm one evening — sand was 
everywhere. Think I deserved a 'River 
Rat' certificate at the end of that trip ! " 
Pat spent a week in Washington, D. C. 
at the Special Libraries Association Con- 
vention and is now studying History of

Kay Starkey Litehiser is happily re-

P. O. Box 341. Nokomis, Florida is the

Mary Ann Fisher Espy represented La-

Rich as President of Waynesburg College 
on October 12, 1963. She reported: "It 
was a marvelous experience — something 
I shall never forget. Do feel free to 
make me a Delegate-at-Large for Lasell

recent weeks has certainly brought back 
so many wonderful memories. Please re-

1943 

We all gathered in Winslow Hall at ten 
in the morning where there was registra- 
tion and lots of hot coffee and doughnuts 
to enjoy while starting the chat for the 
day as people kept arriving. Lots of — 
"Who is that — she's in our class but 
can't remember the name — who has the 
yearbook." The faces were all familiar but 
it's amazing how the name escapes. Presi- 
dent and Mrs. Tewksbury were table hop- 
ping and it was most pleasant to meet them. 
They invited all to visit and tour their home. 
A lovely home with the most handsome fire- 
places, each with different tiles. Enormous 
and lovely oriental carpets are used through- 
out the first floor. All of the furnishings 
are most tastefully done. 

After coffee and lots of reminiscing, 
we joined the Parade to the tent on the 
athletic field for luncheon. The day had 
begun with an overcast sky and cool air 
but by lunch time the sun shone brightly. 
Two groups of Seniors entertained us with 
singing. The Lamp Lighters, very profes- 
sional in their presentation, announced 
they had cut records which were on sale 
in the "Barn." 



The luncheon was concluded with the 
singing of the "Alma Mater." Try re- 
membering the words after twenty years 
— a good trick! It was a joy to hear the 
Class of 1918! 

After the group adjourned I met with 
our class for a short time. It was my sad 
duty to announce the passing of Betty 
McAvoy Marilley on^May 28, 1963. Betty 
is survived by her husband and six chil- 
dren. Memorial contributions may be 
sent to the Cancer Society. 

Nan Mondello Stramondo will help us 
now as Assistant Secretary. She lives in 
Lexington, Massachusetts, and is handy to 
Lasell. We will work together on the 
25th reunion and hope for a big turnout. 

Immediately following luncheon a ser- 
vice was held to lay the cornerstone and 
dedicate the new secretarial building up 
the hill from the athletic field. The build- 
ing has been named in honor of Priscilla 
Alden Wolfe '19, mother of Virginia 
Wolfe Perkins '44. 

Our Queen, Mary Keating, came to mind 
as we watched the Seniors, in Cap and 
Gown, lead the procession to the Crow's 
Nest. The Court attendants, in pastel 
satin robes, were so lovely and so young 
. . . we must have been too! 

During the evening we enjoyed dinner 
at Valle's Steak House on Route 9 and 
concluded with more chatting and finally 
farewells with vows to meet again in five 
years. Attending the dinner were: Mr. and 
Mrs. Miles Olson (Ann Preuss), Mr. and 
Mrs. Albert Manning (Barbara Birch), 
Mr. and Mrs. Douglas Brownell (Betty 
Duerr), Marjorie Langworthy Hegeman, 
Priscilla Spence Hall, Dorothy Marr Peck-

1948 Talks It Up 





The 15th Reunion of the Class of 1948 
was a gala occasion. There was a fine 
delegation on hand, headed by Class Sec- 
retaries. Berry Groff from California and 
Mim Day Butcher from Florida. High- 
light of the afternoon was the announce- 
ment of a gift to the College in memory 
of Angela Mainini Anastasi. The memo- 
rial committee, with Dorothy Piranian 
Ryan as chairman, chose a projector to 
be used by the Science classes. 

A summary of individual activities — 
gleaned from the questionnaires — will 
appear in a later issue of the LEAVES. 
For the present, pictures tell their own 
lively story.

We are always delighted to have letters from former Seminary 
students, and are proud to share their fond reminiscences of "glorious 
days at beloved Alma Mater". To prove "dissatisfaction" is not a 
modern-day disease, we quote from a graduate, Class of 189 — : 

"Please scratch me off your list. I am not interested in Lasell 
and thoroughly disgusted with the education I received there. The 
idea of not being forced to take physics and chemistry, and being 
forced to take historical trips and daily walks, which can be of no 
possible use to the ordinary woman, still makes me sore."

FROM THE ALUMNAE . . 



1902 

Bertha White Sprague is ever "proud and 
happy to have had the opportunity of at- 
tending the Seminary under the splendid 
leadership and guidance of Dr. Bragdon, 
Miss Carpenter and Miss Hotchkiss. To- 
day's Development program at the College 
thrills me, and the LEAVES bring back 
many happy memories." 

Ellen McGrew Hollenbeck proudly an- 
nounces the arrival of her first great-grand- 
child on November 6, 1963. 



1905 

Barbara Vail Bosworth and Edith 
Harber Wright have the opportunity to 
visit with each other fairly often, now that 
Barbara is in Oregon. 

The Class extends its deepest sympathy 
to Grace Rowe Vail whose husband, 
Charles, recently passed away. 

Eila Patterson Rogers' new address is 
1773 Parnell Road, Eugene 1, Oregon. 
Eila has resigned her position as house- 
mother at Oregon College and is now 
situated in her own apartment, near her 
son John. 



1910 

Julia Hamilton Peters: "Now I'm a great- 
grandmother with ten grandchildren. The 
children, one family, live in Portland, 
Oregon — the son and daughter in Great 
Falls. Never a dull moment for both my 
husband and me." 

Mildred Goodall Fairbanks writes: "I 
have 11 grandchildren and one great- 
granddaughter. Love Florida living as I 
enjoy warm weather, and play golf twice 
a week. I also work at the Miami Heart 
Institute and am active in the Miami 
Cancer Chapter." 

Irma Levi Levy sends "best wishes for a 
wonderful year — and many more to 
come !" 

Margherita Dike Hallberg and Mary 
Lombard Courtney are planning to motor 
to Florida, stopping in New Orleans for a 
visit with Mildred Snyder Grant. 

Lucy Aldrich Berston spent an evening 
in Dallas with Tot McLean Hunt. Lucy 
adds: "The new buildings and all the 
changes at Lasell look wonderful to me." 



1907 

Jennie Drew Hinman x-'07 writes that 
she and her husband celebrated their 50th 
wedding anniversary two years ago. The 
Hinmans have four sons and sixteen 
grandchildren. 

Lilian Douglass Heeb reports "a delight- 
ful Christmas Festival Tour of three weeks 
to Mexico. Ida Sisson Craver and husband 
are looking forward to a similar trip in 
early February." 

1908 

We extend sincere sympathy to Charlotte 
Ryder Hall, whose husband, Mr. Clifford 
Hall, passed away in December 1963. 




1909 

Constance Blackstock writes: "Have had 
a lovely visit with Marguerite Mcllvain 
Ricker x-'29 and her husband, who manage 
the Hotel LaPierre in Ocean Grove, New 
Jersey. Jane Gray '29 was here for a 
weekend, and I enjoyed meeting with Alice 
Graham x-'29 in Harwichport (Mass.) last 
August. It was a joy to see these former 
students. Lasell has cause to be proud of 
her Alumnae."

1923 
40th REUNION 

Well, my dears, pull up a chair and be 
comfortable while I tell you about our 
40th Reunion and the wonderful time we 
had together. 

We wish you all had been able to "come 
back" but twelve of us were present at 
the Luncheon at Lasell and what a good- 
looking group they were: Florence 
Boehmcke Edmondson, Nance Mill- 
spaugh, Claire Parker Everett, Lovina 
Smith Steffian, Ruth Hopkins Spooner, 
Lucy Kellogg Pels, Dorothy Chase Scott, 
Ruth Dinsmore Sayward, Margaret Bullock 
Reed, Antoinette Meritt Smith, Nevetta 
J. Smith (my sister and a loyal and true 
"step-daughter" of Lasell) and your Life 
Secretary — Adrienne Smith Stone. Your 
Scribe found some deep purple pansies, 
tied them with white ribbon, on which '23 
was conspicuously painted in purple ink, 
and so our identification (as if we needed 
anything of the kind) was complete. It 
was the consensus of opinion that we were 
a "young-looking group of 'old girls' " ! 

At the Alumnae meeting we presented 
our class gift to the College and we gave 
a check in the amount of $425.00 to 
Barbara Iris Johnson, Alumnae President. 
I shall always be very grateful to those 



who contributed so generously. The fol- 
lowing gals contributed to the gift, direct- 
ed to the Alumnae Scholarship Fund: 
Jessie Watters, Nance Millspaugh, Eliza- 
beth Mitchell Ridout, Claire Parker Ever- 
ett, Dorothy Chase Scott, Margaret Bullock 
Reed, Louisa Venable Kyle, Ruth Hopkins 
Spooner, Marjorie Lowell Weeks, Anna 
Bullock Thornton, Florence Boehmcke 
Edmondson, Evelyn Shidler Robertson, 
Carolyn Colton Avery, Helen Hinshaw 
Toohey, Marion Austin Hakewessell 
(x-'23), Ruth Dinsmore Sayward, Antoi- 
nette Meritt Smith, Anne Daugherty 
Slater, Ida A. Markert, Lovina Smith 
Steffian, Lucy Kellogg Pels, and Adrienne 
Smith Stone. 

After the Alumnae meeting, the dedica- 
tion of the new Priscilla Alden Wolfe 
Secretarial Building, and the President's 
Reception (following the crowning of the 
June Queen) the girls . . . with the ex- 
ception of Toni, who had duties to per- 
form as the wife of the Chairman of the 
Board of Trustees, and Hoppy, who wanted 
to revisit Gardner Hall, came to your 
Scribe's home in West Newton for the 
remainder of the afternoon. We had a 
wonderful visit together, enjoyed refresh- 
ments, and then were off to the Pillar 
House for our Reunion meeting. Lucy and 
Ruth had to leave, much to our regret. 
Lucy had to return to Maine that after- 
noon. So there were ten who shared in 
the Reunion Dinner and enjoyable eve- 
ning in a private dining room (reserved 
by your Scribe two years ago). After 
a delicious dinner we got down to busi- 
ness and voted to confirm the gift of 
$425.00 to the Alumnae Scholarship Fund 
— and discussed the Dorothy Merwin 
Brown Scholarship and Memorial Fund 
which we established five years ago. Un- 
fortunately the scholarship fund did not 
"build up" as anticipated and we felt it 
should now be given to the College with 
the expressed understanding that a piece 
of equipment for the new classroom build- 
ing be purchased in memory of our de- 
ceased classmates of '23 and be so marked. 

Now for the news! We have "found" 
Dorothy Chase Scott again. Her address 
is: 91 Tulip Avenue, Queen Building, 
Floral Park, New York. Dorothy was the 
delightful and thoughtful house guest of 
your Scribe over the Big Weekend and 
what a wonderful time we had talking 
until all hours of the morning. It was a 
joy to renew and review our long friend- 
ship. It was with sadness we learned 
that her husband had passed away on De- 
cember 24, 1962. She is surrounded by 
the love of their two children and her 
three step-children and twelve grandchil- 
dren — their pictures are delightful. She 



16 



LASELL LEAVES 



hopes to fly to Paris during the summer 
of 1964 to visit family and friends. She 
has invited your Scribe to visit her in 
New York and when that takes place 
we'll have a Reunion for all '23ers in the 
New York area. 

"Boehmcke" is still the young-looking 
gal she always was and it is hard to 
believe that our Class Baby (her Bobby) 
has four children and is a Commander 
in the Naval Reserve. Jimmy has four 
children and is the "pro" at the Pittsfield 
Country Club. Harry is retired and from 
all we hear, it must agree with this fine 
couple. 

Anne Bullock Thornton is ever the busy 
lady. She writes "I had hoped to attend 
the Reunion with Louise Morgan .... 
but find my niece, nephew and baby will 
be with us. However, my greetings to all 
— have a marvelous time." She is Vice 
Chairman of the Office of Volunteers, Prov- 
idence Chapter, American Red Cross, and 
a member of the Executive Committee of 
Workshops, Inc. of Rhode Island, Coun- 
cil of Community Services, and active in 
Pembroke College Alumnae activities. 

Margaret Bullock Reed has three chil- 
dren and twelve grandchildren. Son 
Charles is a pilot for Aramco in Dhahran, 
Saudi Arabia. He has three sons. Son 
Hugh is doing missile work for Western 
Electric in New York City — is the 
father of three daughters (including twins) 
and two sons. Margaret's daughter, Eliza- 
beth Priebe, is married and also lives in 
Reading. Her husband is an engineer for 
Avco and they have one girl and four 
boys. Margaret has many hobbies — does 
hooked rugs for a specialty — does 
beautiful arts and crafts work — travels 
considerably — and loves to go fishing 
"up country". Your Scribe is grateful to 
her for offering to help on the Reunion 
and at any other time '23 decides to do 
something. 

"Connie" Colton Avery was not able to 
come and we were sorry not to see her. 
She has two grandchildren — Trudy Ann, 
age 5 and Tammy Lu, age 3. Connie re- 
ported she had had a fine spring visit to 
Hawaii. 

It was good to see Ruth Dinsmore 
Sayward and to know she is living in 
Arlington. She brought Lucy Kellogg 
Pels with her and we owe her a big 
thank you for doing that. Ruth wrote on 
her questionnaire: "am expecting a grand- 
child in August." 

Anne Daugherty Slater sent a charm- 
ing picture of "Anne and Bob". Despite 
the heartbreak of losing her only son, 
Anne writes that she is busy "with mak- 
ing miniatures for shadowbox rooms, 
painting and gardening and keeping up 



with the activities of nineteen nieces and 
nephews and their offspring." She and 
her husband were attending a June con- 
vention in Indiana and added: "I'll be 
thinking of you and would love to be 
there." 

From Sherman Oaks, California, came 
a message from Florence Gifford Flem- 
ing. "Gifford" writes "I am clerk at the 
Valley Presbyterian Hospital. I'd give any- 
thing to be in Auburndale — love to all 
my old friends." Son Reed has a daughter, 
Deirdre, and daughter Shirley has a son, 
Steven. Hope we shall see Deirdre's name 
on the Lasell roster! 

A letter sent to Ruth Hight Guild at 
358 Hill Avenue, Glen Ellyn, Illinois, 
came back "unknown — no longer at this 
address". Can anyone send a new address 
for her? 

Ruth Hills Livermore writes from Lazy 
J B Ranch in Wapiti, Wyoming, "no time 
for trips or hobbies. Have just acquired 
a small ranch and we are raising Hereford 
cattle, son John and I. Wish I could be 
with you." 

"Hoppie" is still the busy lady we've 
always known. She writes: "much of my 
time is devoted to volunteer service for our 
church and in our local hospital and the 
county hospital." She has travelled widely 
and lists her hobbies as gardening, writing 
and reading. She and Warren still live in 
Saddle River, New Jersey. 

Helen Hinshaw Toohey writes from 
Shawnee, Mission, Kansas; "How can all 
these years have piled up since that gradu- 
ation week in 1923! I don't feel like 40 
years has elapsed — and yet — when I 
see my children and grandchildren and 
think back on the many happenings through 
the years, it is quite convincing. We have 
two married children, son, William H. 
and a daughter, Barbara Toohey Smith. 
Between them we have four grandchildren 
— and one on the way. Our travelling 
has been confined to the Eastern seaboard 
because our children are there. Have en- 
joyed teaching speech and reading through 
the years, not a heavy schedule, but enough 
to be stimulating and fun." 

Two lovely snapshots of Marjorie Lowell 
Weeks came with a heartwarming letter. 
I must pass on one sentence which pleased 
your Scribe. Marjorie writes: "I am very 
proud of you and Toni and only wish 
more of the class of 1923 could take an 
active part in Lasell 'doings.' " Her daugh- 
ter, Janet Roberts, lives outside Chicago 
and "we have two darling grandchildren • — 
Cynthia and Timmy. Spent part of the 
winter in Florida as usual and hope when 
Walter retires we can go to Europe for 
an extended stay. Gardening and photog- 
raphy are my -hobbies." From the pictures,

we all agreed that Marjorie looked "just 
the same". 

What a joy it was to hear from Ida 
Markert. In her letter she wrote; "It 
was mighty thoughtful of you to suggest 
that Dorothy Chase Scott contact me about 
coming to our 40th Reunion. Her sweet 
friendliness over the telephone made me 
want very much to join you all, but un- 
fortunately I am unable to do so because 
of another commitment. Do get in touch 
with me when you come to New York. 
I hope you and your sister had a most 
enjoyable time in Bermuda. I'd love to 
go back again some day. Mce recent 
vacations have taken me to Europe, the 
Mediterranean and the Caribbean. Am 
uncertain as to what can be arranged for 
this year. I'll be retiring this fall from 
the New York Mission Society where 
I've been working for the past six years. 
Please extend my greetings to all the Re- 
unioners. I'll be thinking of you." The 
night '23 "took" caps and gowns, your 
Scribe hid in the closet in Ida's and 
Jessie Waiters' room. Enough said. Car- 
penter has many memories. 

Nance Millspaugh — we couldn't have a 
Reunion without her cheery presence — 
has served thirty-five years as a troop 
leader for the Girl Scouts, and is now a 
Council member. She says she has ac- 
complished "very little" but when you 
think of all the girls who have come 
under her influence and leadership, you 
know it should read "very much" She 
and "Boehmcke" came together. What a 
grand pair they are. 

From Tazewell. Virginia. Betty Mitchell 
Ridout writes: "We have one son, aged 22, 
graduated from Virginia Military Institute. 
Now serving in the Army in Fairbanks, 
Alaska. I still love sports, but do more 
watching than playing these days." 

The busiest person I know is Claire 
Parker Everett. She looks so wonderfully 
well I feel sure that keeping busy is the 
secret. She is secretary of the Board of 
Trustees at the Cape Cod Hospital, trustee 
of the Massachusetts SPCC, Chairman of 
the District Nursing Association, Chair- 
man of the Heart Drive, Chairman of the 
T.B. Drive, interested in church work and 
Vice Chairman of the Cape Cod Red Cross. 

Lucy Fuller Foster writes from South 
Portland, Maine, they have two girls — 
"one married and one still in college. 
Three grandchildren. Interested in church 
work, hospital and garden club." 

Del Smith Steffian came to the Reunion 
and reports her son is "in business with 
his father, and number two boy will join 
the company in the fall." We are proud 
that Del's husband, Ted, was the architect 



for the Priscilla Alden Wolfe Building 
which was dedicated on Reunion Day. 

Louisa Venable Kyle wrote from Lon- 
don Bridge, Virginia; "Love to all the 
class of 1923. Sorry I can't be with you, 
but I shall be attending my husbands 40th 
Reunion at the University of Virginia Law 
School." The Kyles have three daughters 
and eight grandchildren. Although Louisa 
continues to do some free lance writing, 
she also finds the time to do some travel- 
ling (which she admits she loves). She 
has been abroad three times — took a 
trip to Chicago last October where she 
visited Helene Grashorn Dickson '22 and 
Betty Mitchell Ridout. 

Evelyn Shidler Robertson sent word; 
"So sorry I can't be with you for our 
40th, but we have already planned a trip 
north to see our three children and twelve 
grandchildren. We have lived in Florida 
(Sarasota) nearly four years — and love 
it. I have been doing a lot of 'shelling' 
and am building up such a collection we'll 
have to move out of the house soon! 
We did have a wonderful visit with Lovina 
and Ted Steffian two years ago. Love to 
all!" 

Jessie Watters is one of the most 
talented of our Class. Through the 
"grapevine" I understand she had an art 
exhibit of her own in New Haven. Jessie 
recalled; "I saw Ida for a few hours last 
February. She had come to New Haven 
to preview a show so I drove over to see 
her. My how we talked ! My home and 
my 84-year-old mother keep me busy." 

It is with sadness that we report the 
death of Dorothy Alexander Windatt x-'23, 
on September 21, 1962. Our sympathy 
is extended to Dorothy's husband and to 
her family. 

A questionnaire from Marion Austin 
Hakewessell x-'23, tells of her son, Carl, 
who is a registered architect in Hartford, 
Conn; her son, David, an engineer in the 
Systems Division of Giannini Controls 
Corporation of Duarte, Calif.; and a 
daughter, Marion, who is a physics teacher 
in Norwalk, Conn. Marion also writes; 
"Many trips to California to see our two 
granddaughters, a two-month auto trip 
through Europe in I960 (wish it could 
have been longer, never seem to have 
enough time), and as for hobbies — just 
about everything — including genealogy, 
playing the organ, travel whenever pos- 
sible." 

Toni and Wilder continue to carry 1923 
to glory at Lasell. No other class can 
boast — "we have one of our members 
who is a trustee and her husband is 
Chairman of the Board of Trustees of 
Lasell !" We are, indeed, proud of the 
Chairman and his lady!

LASELL LEAVES 



Lucy Kellogg Pels is teaching school in 
North Edgecomb, Maine. As a sideline — 
she runs an antique shop with her husband 
and son. Last summer my sister and I 
visited with Lucy and her husband at their 
shop. If you want to see some beautiful 
things, do stop at The Anchorage in 
North Edgecomb. 

We had looked forward to seeing 
"Pinkie" (Puckett Neill) and having her 
with us, but her duties as secretary for 
her daughter, T.V.'s popular Amanda 
Blake, made it difficult for travel at that 
time. 

We understand Norma Prentis Phillips' 
son is married and that her daughter is in 
Framingham. Bonnie Orlady Hougen's 
husband has retired and we heard that 
he had suffered a heart attack, but has 
recovered. Marian Miller Byram is in the 
real estate business in Florida with her 
brother. Marion Norton Ede's (x-'23) hus- 
band has retired and they are living in 
Gary, Indiana, although they spent the 
winter in Laguna, Florida. Eugenia Swift 
Lawrence x-'23, is an active member of the 
Falmouth Garden Club. The Lawrences 
summer in Falmouth and winter at Delray 
Beach, Florida. 

And now we come to your Life Secre- 
tary and Scribe. As you know, since our 
last Reunion, I became Mrs. Mason Hills 
Stone on February 27, I960. I have two 
fine step-sons, two charming daughters- 
in-law (one is Dorothy Acuff Stone '37) 
and four wonderful grandchildren. That 
same year I broke my right wrist and the 
next year, to show no partiality, I broke 
my left wrist. Our home was taken by 
the State for the famous Toll Road and 
then I had a coronary in February, 1962 
and was hospitalized for five weeks. While 
I was recovering, my husband was oper- 
ated on for a routine complaint and 
passed away at the same hospital. I have 
made a fine recovery — but have to slow 
up a bit. We had just been in our new 
home in West Newton less than six 
months when he was taken and it has 
not been easy. My sister lives with me 
now and we went to Bermuda just before 
Reunion. We are seriously considering 
a trip to Japan in the near future. I have 
always travelled widely and done so much 
volunteer work it is hard to "quiet down 
a bit" at times. It was my pleasure to 
serve as President of the Greater Boston 
Lasell Club for two years and am still a 
member of the Board. Once a Lasell girl, 
always a Lasell girl holds true. I am a 
member of the Auburndale Garden Club 
and active in the Newton Community 
Club, the Appalachian Mountain Club, 
the D.A.R. and several smaller clubs. My 



pencil sketching is taking up some of my 
time and we spend a great deal of time at 
our place in Topsham, Maine. "Soufle of 
Smith-stone", my miniature silver poodle, 
asked me to tell you that the latchstring 
will always be out to the members of the 
Class of 1923. 

Well, my dears, this concludes to morn- 
ing broadcast. 40th Reunion was perfect 
from all but one standpoint — we wish 
more could have been with us. Try to 
come back for the 45th. Please remember 
to send any interesting news. As our 
circle grows smaller, let us grow closer 
and continue to "Lift High the Torch".

One of the most enthusiastic visitors to 
Lasell was Helen Earl Potter x-'24, who 
stopped in just before the holidays. Now 
living in Stonington, Connecticut, the Pot- 
ters were visiting in Wellesley before 
making a trip to Florida and the West 
Coast. 

Adele Bigham Nelson writes us: "I am 
now Executive Director of the Corinthian 
Foundation, Inc. in Syracuse, a philan- 
thropic foundation which operates a Sen- 
ior Citizens Day Center. Am also pleased 
to have been listed in the latest edition 
of Who's Who of American Women. On 
top of it all, I am the proud grandmother 
of 5." 

Dorothy Barnard is the Assistant Die- 
titian at Radcliffe College and enjoys it 
tremendously. Dorothy spent a few days 
in Maine, last summer, visiting with Fran 
Bliss Crosby at Blue Hill and with 
Theresa Thompson Osborne '22 at Belfast. 

From Elizabeth Hanna Anderson we hear: 
"Seven grandchildren — scattered — 
2 English Setters and a busy husband at 
home help to keep me busy — plus the 
usual Red Cross work." 

"All best wishes to 1924", come from 
Hazel Small Eldredge in Sandwich, Mass. 
She adds: "We keep busy remodeling our 
home, which was being lived in in 1690. 
It is the historical house mentioned in 
Jack Frost's Cape Cod Sketch Book as 
'The House of the Seven Kitchens'. My 
husband and I have a small summer an- 
tique shop in one of these delightful 
rooms." 

Margaret Lonval Epps is "looking for- 
ward to June Reunion — not the year — 
but seeing dear, old classmates."

esting Lasell news is to report a delight- 
ful luncheon with Evelyn Suor Butter-

other since our college days — just a 
wonderful reunion!"

Fairfield, I found the adjustment a bit diffi- 
cult — but not so the boys. In the aftenoons 
and on weekends, 33 Farmcliff Drive is a 
veritable Boys Town. 

"Our three sons are 13, 16, and 19, so 
we're still fooling around with chemistry sets, 
model cars, rock collections, coins, stamps, 
modern cars and girls! Youngest son goes 
to dancing school, takes accordion lessons 
and belongs to the local rifle club. Mid- 
dle boy is a fine student, interested in sports, 
animals — and just about everything. The 
# 1 boy is concentrating on studies — for 
this is his final year of high school. 

"Summer activity for the entire family is 
mainly boating. We are all sailors — just 
love it. Our most successful — and longest 
— cruise this past summer was from Essex 
on the Connecticut River to Onset on Buz- 
zards Bay."

Virginia Wright Church writes: "We 
moved to Richmond, Virginia — the

Byrd Airport. What a change of pace — 
slow and relaxed but it's 'right nice' - — ■ 
country and folks are real friendly". 

Emily Saxton Braman reports that she is 
actively engaged in church and garden club 
work. One daughter is a junior at Queens

Wheaton College in Norton, Mass. Her 
son is in the 3rd form at Hopkins Gram- 
mar School in New Haven. 

Elizabeth Tracy McCampbell and daugh- 
ter Kaye made a flying visit by Lasell 
last year. Elizabeth says she couldn't be- 
lieve the changes — "Twenty-six years is 
a long time !" 

We had a long Christmas letter from 
Anne Campbell Terrell, x-'37, parts of 
which we share with the Class. "David, 
'tall man' of the family, has experienced 
several adjustments and adventures during 
'63. Following a brimful senior year in 
high school, he embarked on his first 
summer job. In September he enrolled at 
Maryville College, located in the scenic 
Smokies, near Maryville, Tenn. He was 
soon burning the midnight oil, and though 
he is working harder than ever, we're 
sure that he is finding it all worthwhile. 
Jim E., our other college student, re- 




Nanette Feuling

turned to Maryland, close enough to home 
that we can catch up (on weekends) with 
him as to news, laundry and dates with 
his girl friend. As State President of the 
C.A.R., Jim E. is active in many Maryland 
and District meetings. He hopes to get a 
degree in Business Administration before 
the draft board taps him. 

"Jim Sr., overly busy with a demanding 
schedule of work and travel as Deputy 
Chief of the Division of Radiological 
Health of USPHS, just returned from a 
trip to Geneva for a W. H. O. conference. 
Combining business and pleasure last 
spring, we visited many friends in South 
Carolina, Georgia and Florida. There was 
a whirlwind trip to New York in the fall — 
lunch at the Waldorf, dinner at the famous 
Lambs Club, a performance of the Mos- 
cow Circus — all in one day!" 

Anne has concentrated on new and old 
hobbies — in addition to the usual church 
and club work. As a member of the 
PHS decorating committee for the No- 
vember style show, she helped with 100 
Indian masks, miniature Indian teepees and 
over 200 feet of western scenery. Last 
summer she placed second in the Ladies

Bailey Black '40. How skiing resorts have 
progressed since those days, but certainly 
Hannes Schneider is truly the father of 
the sport in this country. Unfortunately, 
I do not ski well, but my daughter is

the Tobe-Coburn School for Fashion Ca- 
reers in New York City. Served as 
Fashion Co-ordinator for the Albert Wood- 
ley Company, an advertising agency, until 
1959 when I returned to Massena (N.Y.) 
to be with my mother. I worked in the 
advertising department at The Massena 
Observer — sold advertising (display), 
wrote copy, made layouts and worked on 
special promotions. In December 1963 I 
became Mrs. James M. Meagher, Jr. and 
have recently moved to Lake Oswego, 
Oregon (477 Sixth Street)." 

1946 

From Deborah Newton Warren: "Bob- 
by, our oldest boy — IOV2. is now an 
accomplished swimmer and sailor and 
races every weekend during the summer. 
Ricky is 7, Philip, 6, and Stuart 2l/ 2 . We 
are active in Little League — Father 
being umpire in chief!! Lots of fun — 
but wonder if I can live through ten more 
years of ball games!" 

"We moved to Richmond in September," 
writes Louise Pool Langley, "and I wish to 
report that the myth of Southern Hos- 
pitality is a fact. This is a wonderful 
town and we are all happy here." 

Norma Jane O'Shea Delaney reports a 
pleasant summer enjoying a new sailboat 
— the fall was taken up with the re-

being involved in the project." Joyce has 
two children, Alan 6, and Sue 3. 

1948 

"THE CLASS OF 1948 REMEMBERS 
ANGELA MAININI ANASTASI AS A 
CLASSMATE AND FRIEND WHO 
GAVE HER WONDERFUL LAUGHTER 
AND LOVE. AND THEREFORE WE 
HAVE PRESENTED THIS PROJECTOR 
TO THE SCIENCE CLUB BECAUSE 
ANGELA ENJOYED HER SCIENCE 
CLASSES AND WAS SUCH AN OUT- 
STANDING STUDENT." These were the 
words submitted by Dorothy Piranian 
Ryan and announced by Mim Day Butcher 
at our June, 1963 reunion. The gift in 
memory of Angela Mainini Anastasi from 
contributing members of the Class of '48 
is a Thermofax overhead projector. On be- 
half of the College, Dr. Tewksbury has ex- 
pressed sincere appreciation to all who con- 
tributed to the Angela Mainini Anastasi 
Memorial Fund. 

Thirty-seven '48'ers gathered together for 
the 15th Reunion on campus. It could not 
have been a nicer day or a nicer time for 
all. The following statistics have been 
compiled so far as we have been informed 
(they do not include x-'48 information as 
it is not complete) : 

Married: 188. Babies: 373 (167 girls, 
196 boys, 10 unknown as to whether boy 
or girl). 

As far as we know. Three members of 




The Trevisans 
(Nancy O'Rourke '48) 

the Class have SIX children: Nancy 
O'Rourke Trevisan, 4 girls, 2 boys; Laurie 
Pierce McGrail, 2 girls, 4 boys; Gloria 
Wurth Harrison, 4 girls, 2 boys.

Sylvia Dike Canty, Dorothy JoAnn Han- 
son Long, Pat Mangan Price, Alice 
Johnson Thornton, Natalie Hall Olson, 
x-'48, Marilyn Newitt Jones and Shirley 
Bonnell Doe. 

To our knowledge, TWO members of 
the Class have TWINS ! 

Alice Johnson Thornton (girls) and May- 
anne Murray Lynch (boys). 

We found that the '48'ers were and are 
so "active", we thought you might like 
to know some of the many (and various) 
interests; "Sewing, ceramics, tray painting, 
coin collecting, interior decoration, den 
mother, brownie leader, Girl Scouts, fur- 
niture refinishing, flower arranging, jazz 
and classical music, Sunday school, knitting,

Miss Evelyn Potts kindly shares the an- 
nual Christmas message from "all the 
Wheatons" (Dode Molan) : "We are now 9 
(7 + 2), ten pounds of Paul having been 
added to the crew last May. Cheryl is in 
5th grade, which makes her practically a 
teen-ager, and still the assistant mother. 
David and John are almost twins; doing 
excellently in school, good athletes, and 
student council (John). Jim loves school 
and people and mechanical things, and is 
calming down. Susan is just plain scrump- 
tious, and should be preserved in a bottle. 
Elizabeth is very cute and very independent 
and very imaginative and very bad; we 
regularly threaten to give 'it' away, but the 
others are also amused and won't let us. 

"After the extreme busy-ness of the past 
couple of years, we took a break this 
summer to relax a little. We had a high 
school girl (sort of a permanent helper 
and baby sitter) and a boy (to mow the 
lawn and work), and spent all of this 
freedom with the family; all the kids took 
swimming lessons at the village beach, 
Cheryl took tennis, we took walks, Dode 
and I were the guests of some very kind 
friends at their Wisconsin lake cabin, and 
we took in the ball games. This may all 
sound very natural, but it was new to us. 
By the end of the summer, too, we had 
installed a regular playground for the kids 
— and the neighborhood — in the back 
yard: a tent, sand box, tetherball, swings, 
slide and an unauthorized baseball 
diamond. 

"The man of the house is still tiying 
to keep Honeywell's Ordnance Division 
prosperous, and that's about all he can say 
about his business. That frustrates Dode,

too — she'd like to know more about 
what kind of secret work he does. Dode 
is still very active and satisfied with her 
Junior League and Hospital volunteer 
work, and I can't tell you much about 
that either. 

"Again, our best wishes and blessing 
to you all." 

The Class extends sincere sympathy to 
Petie Fiske Brubaker, whose eleven-year- 
old son, Carl, died on February 23, 1963. 

A "newsy" Christmas message from Nat 
Hall Campbell provided reports of their 
"comings and goings" over the past year. 
During the summer they attended a 
"family reunion" on the Cape. "Five chil- 
dren under six — and three of them in 
diapers ! No wonder I didn't try to do any 
visiting." Nat and Rog took a "business- 
pleasure" trip to California in the fall ■ — 
on the go constantly — did all that was 
possible in a six day period and had a 
"fabulous time". Nat writes that their 
biggest undertaking for the year has been 
working on the plans for their new home. 
"With luck — maybe we'll be in before 
Christmas, 1964." 

Barbara Cohan Rossen and her family 
have moved into a new home in Los Altos 
Hills, California. (26763 Palo Hills Dr.) 
Bunny's children — Jonathan, David and 
Rebecca are now 11, 9 and 5. 

From Nancy Newhall Mackay: "My 
mother, Marion Westphal Newhall x-'22, 
and I have just returned from a three- 
week trip to Europe. We went to Paris, 
Nice, Rome, Florence, Venice, Lucerne 
and London." 

Helen Hamilton Croot's husband, Dar- 
rel, is with Parker and Company in New 
York, as an actuarial consultant.

Via the annual Christmas card, Dorie 
Oneal Becker reports to Miss Potts: 
"Early this fall Ed and I spent four very 
interesting weeks in Africa — Ghana and 
Nigeria. Both countries are among the 
world's top cocoa v producers ■ — the busi- 
ness reason for our trip. Ed is now be- 
coming quite interested in photography — 
we have many wonderful colored slides of 
Africa. Garden club activities are still 
my main interest — am now recording 
secretary for the local club and also cor- 
responding secretary for the Garden Club 
of New Jersey; serve on several committees 
as well. In spite of these duties, do find 
time to work in our own garden — and 
thoroughly enjoy that. For a bit of sum- 
mer vacation, Ed and I chartered a sailing 
sloop — had a grand time cruising along 
the North Shore of Massachusetts. Cooked 
and slept aboard — usually mooring at 
one of the many fine yacht basins. Best 
to all at Lasell !" 

Judith St. John Peterson writes that 
they have moved to Emmaus, Pennsylvania 
where Don is now the Plant Accountant 
at the Allentown division of General 
Electric. 

Doris Pinkham Collins, Sabra Turner 
Stockdale and their husbands, are co-own- 
ers of Silver Sands Cottages, a 35-unit 
colony complete with swimming pool, in 
South, Yarmouth on Cape Cod. Their first 
summer ('63) was most successful and they 
really enjoy the motel business. Dot and 
Bruce have two boys; Mark 8 and David 
4y 2 . Sabra and Lloyd have three children: 
Linda 8, Charles 6V2, and Kenneth born 
last August. The Collinses live in Dux- 
bury, Mass. and the Stockdales in West 
Dennis, on the Cape. "Special consider- 
ation will be given to any and all La- 
sellites and their families who are looking 
for a perfect spot for a wonderful Cape 
Cod vacation. They'll find a real Lasell 
welcome at Silver Sands." 

Ginny Davis Starkweather x-'50 also lives 
in Duxbury where her husband Walter is 
a custom builder of authentic Early 
American homes. 

Marilyn Newhall Kendall, husband John 
and son, Scott were guests at Silver Sands 
last summer. The Kendalls live at 124 
Goden Street, Belmont, Mass. 

We hear from Joan Hahn Fern that they 
have been transferred to the Pittsburgh, 
Pa. area. The Ferns have three children, 
2 boys, 1 girl. Joan is anxious to contact 
Lasell girls in the area.

coach at the Brookline High School. Joan 
Secor Rier, husband Bob, and their three 
sons are enjoying country living in Way- 
land. 

In September Carolyn Snook Rauscher 
had "a fine telephone visit with Ellen 
Key Woodruff, whose son, David, was a 
patient at Children's Hospital in Boston. 
Ellen is a New Jersey neighbor of Jean 
Davies Stanley." 

1951 

Joan Kearney Cormay writes from 26 
Willard Road, Weston, Mass.: "We re- 
cently moved — just six miles — to a two- 
year-old, seven-room house in Weston. 
There is a playroom, with fireplace, in the 
basement — and an acre of flat land — 
and the kids have been having a marvelous 
time — running like Indians; and on week- 
days they are all busy in the fine Weston 
schools. Two-year-old Timothy keeps me 
company at home. 

"Shortly before the holidays a group of 
1951 Day Hops started a series of get- 
togethers and we have had a gay time 
talking and laughing about the old days. 
Joining the parties were Edie Taccone 
Kearney, Olga Iafrate Franchi, Barbara 
Keyes MacKinnon x-'51, Harriet Schwarz 
Hamilton, Marlene Maloof Saidnawey

Ryan x-'51, Deborah Lyons Beach, Eleanor 
Penney Desrochers and myself. 

"Had a long Christmas letter from Dori 
Stewart Davis of Rockaway, N. J. Her 
son, Glenn, is now iy 2 \ Wayne, 4y 2 . Dori 
and husband Dick vacationed in Massa- 
chusetts this past summer — the trip 
brought back many fond memories. Doris 
also mentioned that she had received a 
wedding announcement from Ann Ivers. 

"Barbara Keyes MacKinnon was married 
in September and has recently moved to 
California, where her husband is associated 
with a Santa Ana utility company. Shirley 
'Dusty' Hannifin Adams is in Los Altos. 
Her husband is with the Connecticut 
General Life Insurance Company, and has 
opened a regional office in San Francisco. 
Dusty declares she loves California living 



and is NOT missing the New England 
weather. She says too that the children 
seem to thrive on the West Coast air — 
Rob is six; Kathy, three. 

"My sister-in-law, Edie Taccone Kearney, 
and Charlie celebrated their November 
wedding anniversary in Bermuda. Edith's 
father passed away this fall, so our holi- 
days were saddened. 

"Nancy Mitchell Quinn writes often 
and reports she is feeling just fine. She 
is now living in St. Petersburg, Florida 
with Red's mother. 

"The young Cormays are growing so 
fast, I don't know them myself. Lynn 
Ellen, 10, is in the 5th grade; Lee Carol, 
9, in 4th grade; Ted, Jr. will be 8 on his 
Daddy's February birthday, and Charles 
will be 7 in April. Yet it seems only 
yesterday that I was at Lasell without a 
care in the world except to join a good 
bridge game in the Barn. 

"Best wishes to all for a wonderful 
New Year." 

Anna Stevenson Mangano shares holi- 
day messages from Claire Quinzani Ker- 
ins, Jo Monahan Garrity, Joan Cardinal 
MacMurray, Elaine Quavillon Tull and 
Priscilla Freeman McCartney. From Wood- 
land Hills, California, Claire writes: "We 
are all keeping busy here and thoroughly 
enjoying our new home — let's hope we 
stay in this one a long time! Had a de- 
lightful luncheon at the home of Barbara 
Harris Ryan, whose husband invented the 
Barbie Doll. Also attended a Pool Party 
for Lasellites in the Valley — Jan Pearson 
Hauch '54, Joan Pauling Smith '50, Sandra 
Lally Hovey '52 and Fran Mitchell Van 
Alstyne '54 — with husbands — were 
there. We hope to have a spring party too."

Jo Monahan Garrity is "freezing as 
usual — and not enjoying Chicago winters. 
The girls are having a grand year ■ — first 
grade and kindergarten. Tom is a direc- 
tor of the Regular Republicans and is a 
member of the local zoning board. I am 
involved with a million projects, but plan 
to 'resign' from several groups — do want 
to have more time with the children." 

The MacMurray girls are "full of tricks 
and as cute as they come" — that comes 
directly from their mother, Joan Cardinal. 
Nancy is 8; Ruth, 3, and Carol recently 
celebrated her second birthday. 

Priscilla Freeman McCartney reports: 
"Three children and the house keep me 
busy. Ricky (2) keeps us all busy and 
delighted. Jack is kept hopping at Ly- 
coming, but manages to fit in two softball 
teams, one of which he manages, bowling 
in winter etc. Then there's PTA, were 
both active in the Fair this year — hectic 
life ! I see Janice Weyls Moore regularly 
and Mary Jane White Miller occasionally." 

"We moved to Madison (Conn.) last 
June. 1 '; writes Marion Elaine Quavillon 
Tull. "It is a beautiful, small shore town 
with three lovely beaches — we took full 
advantage last summer. Both children 
(David, 9; and Sharon, 5) attend school 
in Madison." 

From Janet Woodward Powers: "All's 
fine. We love Hawaii and keep busy with 
our seven little — or not so little — ones. 
Would love to see Lasell, though." 

Peggyanne Riker Miller and her family 
have moved into a new home in North 
Carolina. They are all busy getting the 
house in order, joining community groups 
and generally getting adjusted, although 
Bobby misses the snow in the winter. 

Alice Pittenger: "Still working for 
Uncle Sam. Last year he sent me on a 
'round the world' tour and I shall be off 
to Europe in April of '64." 

"Since my children are all in school 
now," writes Gayle Mackie Toth, "I have 
been attending classes at Newark State 
Teachers College, so that I may earn my 
B.A. degree." 

"The boys are really keeping us busy," 
writes Beverly Pink Reynolds. "Cal, Jr. 
is five; Gregory, three. I am directing 
the Junior Choir at church — it's a hand- 
ful at times, but much fun. In November, 
Mici (Mary) Trimby Sawyer had a new 
daughter — ■ there are four Lasell candi- 
dates in her house!" 

And from Janet Underwood Wall x-'51: 
"Charlie is now a special agent with 
Mutual of Hartford Insurance Company — 
his territory is northern Connecticut. It 
is a pleasure to have evenings and Satur- 
days free after five years of hectic hours. 
He is also president of the Greater Hart- 



ford Association for Brain Injured Chil- 
dren, and we devote much extra time to 
this very fine organization. Just before 
Christmas we were weekend guests ' of 
JoAnn Vojir Massey and family in Ridge- 
wood, N. J. Near neighbors at the Cape 
last summer were Jacqueline Paulding 
Hauser '50 and family — we had so much 
fun together." 

Joan Williams Arnold has many a busy 
day. "Andy, four, is loving nursery school. 
Beth, soon to be two, doesn't stop for a 
minute — and is exhausting us all."

Italy. We stopped in London on the way 
home. Tad reported aboard the nuclear

and I came home alone. Merry (Meredith) 
MacLean Suzan and Beth Valleau Schultz 
both visited in Massachusetts last sum- 
mer." 

Ruth Mclntire Brown's boys, David, 
Richard, and Don Jr., are now 8, 6, and 3. 

From Betsy Lewis O'Donnell we hear: 

"I am now the proud Mother of an 11 
month old daughter and love being just 
a good mother and wife." 

1953 

Ginger Wilder Ambard is thoroughly 
enjoying her secretarial work at the Gen- 
eral Electric Credit Corp. in Stamford 
and finds herself "very active in church — 
singing in the choir and serving as ad- 
visor for the high school fellowship. It 
is all so rewarding and gives me much 
opportunity to boost Lasell. Looking for- 
ward to a trip to Boston with the chil- 
dren in the spring. We must see where 
Mommy went to college." The young 
Ambards have three reasons for seeing 
the campus — Lasell is not only Mom- 
mie's Alma Mater, but grandmother's 
(Virginia Hight Wilder '27) and great- 
grandmother's (the late Lorena Fellows 
Sawyer '99).

Mary Lou Burke Alexander: "Reunion 
was great! Loved seeing everyone." 

Word from Deborah Higgins Hergen- 
rother is: "We have four children now — 
twin girls and a younger boy and girl. 
We have pretty well settled in our house 
in Acton. Visited Mary Lou Cooke Mac- 
Knight last summer at their home in Hop- 
kinton, New Hampshire." 

Audrey Felzenberg Silverman: "Settled 
permanently here in Durham. Hal is on 
the Staff of Duke Hospital and is in 
private practice (internist and hematolo- 
gist). Our two boys have turned into real 
southerners." 

A college student again — Barbara 
Howell is at Boston College working for 
her B.S. in Nursing. 

Elizabeth Fried Slater came in contact 
with Marjorie Langworthy Hegeman '43, 
due to their daughters being in the same 
kindergarten class. 

Betty Lou Page informs us: "After

Learn-to-Ski' weeks at Sun Valley — and 
two months in the East last year, I have

Vicky Lynn, was born December 4, 1962. 

Althea Janke Gardner writes: "We 
have started our new home in Upper 
Saddle River, N.J. — and hope to move 
there by June. Our new addition arrived 
in September, 1963 — Kathleen Marie — 
our second girl, fifth child. It's quite a 
noisy household. I see Audrey Thompson 
Reille, Janet Chase Ash, Carol Leake 
Bacon and others. It's quite a 'colony' 
around here!" 

We extend sincere sympathy to Eliza- 
beth Sleight Dexter and to her family. 
Elizabeth's father, Mr. William E. Sleight,

Without doubt, the most unique of an- 
nual letters is the Christmas Edition of the 
Boyers' Barnacle (Holly Engel). Vol. 
Ill contained news of the entire Engel 
family, and a separate sheet carried several 
timely photos. We quote — in part — 
news of especial interest to Holly's many 
Lasell friends: 

"Larry is still attached to the USS 
Pomfret. From January to March '63 he 
was Communicator and Registered Publi- 
cations Custodian, and at present he is 
Weapons Officer. Davey keeps me pretty 
busy and along with the regular routine 
of keeping house, grocery shopping, et al., 
I manage to fill the days. Some of the 
lonesome hours are taken up with knitting 
(my old hobby), occasional bridge games, 
monthly luncheons; and when I go home I 
work with Mother and the Penny Pinchers 
of the National Charity League. 

"I have always believed that life is a 
process of learning and that it is a poor 
day for any of us when we do not learn 
something new, but I must confess that 
our son is such a match for me that I 
sometimes wonder who's teaching who. He 
is an eager little runabout, going every- 
where, wild for experience and adventure. 
Devilish though he may be, two is one of 
the most entertaining and intriguing ages 
of man. 

"We three had planned a trip East to 
see Larry's family in Virginia and then 
on to Pensacola to see my sister Joan 
and husband, when the orders for Larry's 
departure arrived. It was decided that 
Davey and I would go anyway and we 
started on our way early in July. This 
was the beginning of one of the hottest 
summers I have ever spent. 

"The drive from San Diego to Tucson 
made me very happy I was not a pioneer 
travelling via covered wagon. When we 
finally arrived, our faces covered with dust 
from the desert, a pool never looked more 
inviting than the one at the Ramada Inn. 
Then came New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma. 
Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Pennsylvania 
and New York. Davey was a real trooper. 
He just loved the motels and restaurants 
and was always the first to don a bathing 
suit. When we reached Buffalo, he looked 
exactly like a gingerbread man. 

"And, yes, we've done it again. Moving 
just seems to be a habit with us. Our 
new address in San Diego is 3636 Mt. 
Alvarez — we welcome all California 
travelers and visitors." 

Levette Corthouts Downey and husband 
"have just purchased a home — 270 years 
old and deep in the woods. We are up 



to the ears in work. Talked with Carol 
Cunningham Hoyt soon after the birth of 
her daughter in October."

husband, Charles, have recently moved to 
the Virgin Islands and "have a place 
right by the beautiful Caribbean. Soon to

Borge. Any Lasellites in the vicinity — 
please stop in to see us." 

From Susan Hearne Southwick: "We 
are stationed at the Dover AFB in Dela- 
ware. Ed is flying KC-97's with SAC and 
will be until October '64, when we plan 
to separate from the service. Ed will be

LASELL LEAVES 1 

May, 1964 

To the Alumnae: 

The story is told of the Protestant minister who went to visit his good friend 
Father Shannon at a brand-new Catholic parish house. The building was modern, 
efficient, even elegant in an ascetic sort of way. 

The minister was much impressed, and said so. His own accommodations, he 
admitted, were not nearly so fine. "Ah yes," said Father Shannon, "but don't you 
think it is only fair, since we are denied better halves, that we should have better 
quarters?" 

The story is apocryphal and probably not true. But it does serve to introduce 
to Lasell alumnae — who surely constitute the better half of the college corporate 
— the growing need for better quarters on campus, as well as additional quarters, 
for the benefit of future students. 

Lasell's Board of Trustees has already indicated, in principle, that the College 
should try to expand in coming years. Lasell will make every effort to accept her 
share of the steadily increasing number of applicants. This will mean, of course, 
new dormitories, new dining facilities. At the same time, many of our current 
facilities are going to have to be expanded or replaced. 

Bragdon, Hawthorne, Clark — the names flow like ripples from the past. 
Fvery room in those old dorms is brimming with memories. But every room also — 
to be quite candid — is brimming with repair and maintenance bills. Those old 
buildings are up to one hundred years old and more. They have simply passed 
the point of efficient operation. 

All these factors: the need for new dormitories, dining facilities, library, 
gymnasium, and classrooms, are now being correlated into a Master Plan. Step by 
step, our building needs for the next decade are being analyzed by an architectural 
firm specializing in college construction. Various proposals under the Plan are now 
being reviewed by the Board. You'll be hearing more of them as time goes on. 

This past year, as you will discover in this issue, the Annual Giving Fund 
topped $20,000 — about $4,000 more than any previous year. This is a praise- 
worthy record for which both Lasell and I are grateful. You all have reason to 
feel pleased, particularly when we remember the Fund was not conducted under 
any pressure or directed campaign. 

Beginning next fall, we will all be planning for the new Lasell. We will 
be working on specific projects, according to pre-established timetables. Quite 
frankly, it is going to be a tremendous effort, and we will need the loyalty and 
generosity of our alumnae even more than we have in the past. 

I am sure the goals can be achieved. I am sure the new Lasell can be built. 
Working together, we can provide the better quarters for students of the future, 
and thereby strengthen both our College and the cause of education.

LASELL 
REVISITED 



by Audrey Jackson Dade 




Audrey Jackson Dade 



On a brisk wintry morning last February, I stood looking through glass doors 
— into the past. That Monday at Lasell, the college library in Bragdon Hall was 
deserted, for the girls had only just returned from vacation following mid-year 
exams. But as I peered through those glass doors, the library's stacks and study 
tables dimmed and in my mind's eye I saw the room as I had known it years 
before. It was then the college dining room, its round tables presided over by 
such staunch disciplinarians as Miss Potter and Mile. LeRoyer. I could almost hear 
the clatter of heels as we hurried down the stairs for lunch. 

Today Lasell's undergraduates — 675 of them — would overflow that dining 
room in the Bragdon we knew. And this is just one of the many signs of growth 
you will see if you return to Auburndale for your first visit in many years, as I did 
last February. One of the most impressive changes will greet you as you drive along 
Commonwealth Avenue to Cheswick Road; the white house on the corner has been 
converted into the Administration Building. On the lawn a handsome sign reads: 
"LASELL JUNIOR COLLEGE Founded in 1851." No longer a seminary for 
young ladies, Lasell has come of age, the oldest junior college in this country. 

You may ask: With all this growth, what's still there that we knew? Bragdon, 
of course, still stands tall on the hill above Woodland Road. (There was snow 
on the hill the morning I was there and I inquired if the girls still go down "belly 
whoppers" on steel trays. It seems not. Perhaps undergraduates now are too 
sophisticated for our folly.) 

As you enter Bragdon, the rooms to the right and left, which formerly housed 
the administrative offices, have been restored to the gracious parlors of Bragdon's 
youth. The room on the right deserves a special look — so charming with its white 
walls, maroon drapes and mahogany furniture. (The room on the third floor where 
Marian Brown (Schlosser '26) and I lived, incidentally, seems to have shrunk 



LASELL LEAVES 3 

alarmingly from the size I remember.) Definitely not of our day in the past is a 
large turquoise powder room on the first floor. If powder rooms can be said to 
be baronial, it is. 

On the grand tour I was given that morning, I saw Carpenter and Gardner, 
the Barn in back and the playing fields. But Woodland Park School has gone, sold 
for modern building properties. Its memory is retained, however, in the new 
Woodland Dormitory which stands beside Gardner and contains the college dining 
room. Other new buildings, either renovated private homes or recently completed 
structures, bear nostalgic names: Ordway, Wass, Potter, Irwin. Winslow Hall, 
new to me, houses the gymnasium, which becomes an auditorium with the addition 
of chairs. Priscilla Alden Wolfe Hall is a handsome tan brick building completed 
in September 1963; it's the scene of busy students being trained as top-notch 
secretaries. 

As you drive around Auburndale, you'll remember that Lasell has no campus 
as such; the good people of the town have simply taken the College into their 
midst. But you will be amazed at the increase in the number of houses which 
Lasell now owns. You can spot them by their white paint and green trim. They 
are used as dormitories and as college office space. 

Farrington Hall is another new landmark. It's a vast brownstone Victorian 
mansion that sits on a small hill like a castle of old and you reach it up a curving 
driveway; the College spent thousands of dollars to widen that drive to make it 
negotiable by fire trucks. The home was willed to the College by Mrs. Lucia Far- 
rington, and now houses seven classrooms and the Dance Studio. 

On Woodland Road opposite the new Woodland Dormitory stands the Presi- 
dent's Home, also new to my day. It formerly belonged to the Wentworth family. 
Now it is occupied by Dr. and Mrs. Blake Tewksbury, their two sons and a large 
and handsome cat. From Mrs. Tewksbury I learned of a wonderful dish named 
Auburndale Soup; we had it for supper Sunday night and it was so delicious I 
had two bowlfulls. The Tewksburys come from Maine originally — he is a Bow- 
doin graduate — and their old family furniture, most of it refinished by him, fits 
in happily with the furnishings of the President's Home which was redecorated 
by a committee of the Board of Trustees. 

The Sunday I spent with the Tewksburys was the night of the Beatles (the 
first time they appeared on Ed Sullivan's Show). I hesitated to suggest to my 
hosts that I'd like to see Britain's gift to America. But in the midst of our con- 
versation, a young male voice called out, "Come on, Mom, the Beatles." So we 
all sat down in front of the TV in the upstairs living room to watch. As you see, 
Lasell undergraduates will not be encouraged to live in ivory towers. 

Dr. Tewksbury told me that, academically, the trend at Lasell now is away 
from Home Economics and the finishing-school type of course, toward professional 
training as, for example, nursing and medical secretarial jobs. The girls do their 
nursing training at The Newton-Wellesley Hospital. Dr. Tewksbury mentioned 
one fact that will interest you: the College is finding that middle-aged women are 
beginning to knock on Lasell's door for brush-up courses in typing and shorthand, 
in preparation for returning to office positions. 

I saw the undergraduates chiefly en masse, as they walked to classes (laden 
with books, of course), or when I spoke to the student body in Winslow Hall on 
job possibilities in the editorial field. They looked, as you can imagine, much 
younger than the undergraduates of our day! They were dressed in what they 
have apparently chosen as a kind of uniform: sweaters and skirts, duffle coats of 
green, navy or gray, long black socks and loafers. (No slacks, by campus edict.)

They listened to the morning speaker that day with extreme good manners. 

Seeing Lasell again after so many years is like reaching into your pocket for 
a glinting handful of coins of the past. And for those of you who may want, to 
take the trip to the campus, there's good news. A motel is going up along the 
Charles River in Auburndale, so the days of trekking in and out of Boston, as 
visiting alumnae used to do, will be numbered. If you're planning a trip to New 
England, keep this in mind for a pleasant journey into the past — and the future. 

For make no mistake about it. Lasell is growing. You will see signs of it 
everywhere in Auburndale and you will be proud. 



Audrey Jackson Dade '26, an associate editor of The Reader's Digest, was the 
first of three alumnae to participate in a Career Program Series during the 1963-64 
academic year. Audrey's appearance was followed on March 2d by Louise Woolley 
Morgan 23, outstanding TV and radio personality; and on April 6th by Rosalie 
Brightman Rosen, fashion co-ordinator of fay' s, Boston. Rosalie, Life Secretary of 
the Class of 1927 , is a member of the Board of Trustees.

SIXTEENTH ANNUAL ALUMNAE COUNCIL 
MEETINGS .... 

The Annual Meeting of Lasell Alumnae, Inc. . . . 

The Sixteenth Annual Alumnae Council Session opened with a social hour 
preceding dinner in Woodland Hall on Friday evening, April 3, 1964. President 
Barbara Iris Johnson '35 extended greetings to all and introduced the head table 
guests: Dr. and Mrs. Blake Tewksbury, Mr. and Mrs. Wilder Smith, Mr. and 
Mrs. John Arnold, Mr. and Mrs. James Stanley and Mr. Sebastian Mignosa. Mr. 
Smith, Chairman of the Board of Trustees, explained the role of alumnae in future 
development plans of the College. Mr. Mignosa, a member of the Secretarial De- 
partment, gave a report of the improved teaching facilities provided by the 
acquisition of the newest classroom building, Priscilla Alden Wolfe Hall. 

Dr. Tewksbury, guest speaker of the evening, very cleverly "unveiled" the 
master plan for Lasell of the Future. Ten years have been set for the realization 
of this development program. 

The Annual Meeting of Lasell Alumnae, Inc. was held on Saturday, April 4, 
1964, in the spacious lecture room of Priscilla Alden Wolfe Hall. President Bar- 
bara Iris Johnson called the meeting to order, and thanked the Board of Manage- 
ment for its help during her term of office. She then introduced the weekend 
guests of The Association, Jane Burnham Eliason '45 and Carolyn Lindsay Stradley 
'46 of Wilmington, Delaware. 

The secretary's report was read and approved; the treasurer's report was dis- 
cussed and placed on file; the auditor's report was accepted. 

Chairman of the Alumnae Fund, Louise Tardivel Higgins '37, announced the 
total of the 1963-64 campaign: $20,119-83 from 1837 contributors. Included in 
the total figure were six In Memoriam Gifts; matching funds from twelve business 
and industrial companies; and 429 "second" contributions from alumnae. Five area 
clubs directed additional checks to The Alumnae Fund: Chicago, Long Island, 
Philadelphia-South Jersey, Pittsburgh and South Florida. Contributions to The 
Alumnae Scholarship Fund were received from the following clubs: Westchester- 
Lower Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Worcester, Eastern Maine, 
Rochester, Greater Boston, Long Island, Buffalo, Western Massachusetts and 
Connecticut Valley. Three clubs sent contributions to The Alumnae Building 
Fund: Southern California, Connecticut Valley and Rhode Island. 

Shirley Gould Chesebro '33, chairman of the Scholarship Committee, stated 
that three scholarships totaling $1300 had been granted in 1963-64. Over the 
past ten years The Alumnae Association has awarded $16,230 to deserving students. 

Antoinette Meritt Smith '23 listed the projects completed with Alumnae 
funds this year: 

1. $3,700 for the purchase of a wrought-iron fence to mark the boundaries of 
the administrative offices at Commonwealth Avenue and Cheswick Road. 

2. $1,374 for the furnishings of the entrance hall, including the bronze 
plaque, at. Priscilla Alden Wolfe Hall. 

3. $2,898 for landscaping at Priscilla Alden Wolfe Hall. 

Barbara Johnson announced that Mr. Leonard Wolfe has offered evergreens 
from his New Hampshire property to be replanted in the vicinity of the new 
classroom building. These will serve as a living memorial to the late Priscilla 
Alden Wolfe '19. It was voted that Mr. Wolfe be thanked for this eenerous offer.

Guest speaker of the Council Session was Mr. Rudolf O. Oberg, Director

Priscilla Alden Wolfe Hall; Miss Muriel McClelland and Mr. Mignosa served as 
guides. At the afternoon Council session, Marjorie MacClymon '32, alumnae sec- 
retary, introduced Mr. James Stanley, Director of Development. Mr. Stanley 
stressed the need of interesting business concerns and foundations in Lasell in 
order that the College may expand and build in the future. 

A discussion of 1964 Class Reunions followed. Alumnae Weekend will be 
held on June 12, 13 and 14. Alumnae will be invited to make overnight reserva-

WHO IS SHE???? 

We are asked the question by nearly every visitor to The Alumnae Office. 
We hear it from alumnae, from current students, from telephone and typewriter 
repairmen. And we too wonder: Who is She? 

Without doubt, the favorite brown-eyed, brown-haired girl, who oversees 
all office procedure and who overhears all telephone conversations, is a Lasell 
alumna. Three reliable "historians" agree her dress is the khaki-colored Drill 
Uniform of the early 1900's. The artist, whose signature is found at the lower 
left-hand corner of the painting, is Lee Lufkin. Leonella Rella Lufkin of Bolivar, 
New York, attended the Seminary from September 1883 to December 1885. In 
June 1902 she married William J. Kanla, and the last known address for Mrs. 
Kanla was 30 Ipswich Street, The Fenway Studios, Boston. 

Can you identify our gentle and appealing friend? On occasion, we are 
certain she is about to speak for herself; more often, we are convinced she is a 
top-ranking student in Mrs. Blanche Martin's Posture Class . . . indeed, she is 
"young and tall and handsome."

ONE HUNDRED NINTH ANNUAL 
COMMENCEMENT .... 



Parents, relatives and friends attended the 109th Annual Commencement 
Exercises, held on the Recreation Field on Sunday morning, June 7th. "Words to 
the Wise" was the timely subject of the address of guest speaker, Dr. Charles W. 
Ferguson, Senior Editor of The Reader's Digest. Dr. Ferguson is the author of 
seven published books, among them "Say It With Words" and "A Life of Cardinal 
Wolsey." He has published articles, essays, fiction, and verse. Among his civic 
duties, Dr. Ferguson serves as Vice President for Public Information for the 
National Safety Council and as a member of the National Council, Boy Scouts 
of America. 

Before Mr. Wilder N. Smith, Chairman of the Board of Trustees, presented 
diplomas to the 270 candidates for the Associate's degree, President Blake Tewks- 
bury addressed the graduates: 

"I have often thought what might happen if all the graduating classes across 
the nation actually carried out all the advice offered them in Commencement 
addresses and if all the authors of these admonishments actually practiced what 
they preached. The example might prove so potent in world affairs that we could 
convert our atomic power into public utilities and shoot up our guided missiles to 
celebrate the Fourth of July. 

"But no. Year after year, as the earth moves around the sun and spring 
merges into summer, the captive audiences face their speakers with no such visible 
results. Year after year these assemblies hear the same exhortations, the same 
appeals to you to sally forth and slay the same old dragons in the same old 
sinful world. Yet these dragons, unlike their mortal cousins, the dinosaurs, have 
managed to keep well ahead of the game. 

"Why don't we join forces, you and I, slay the dragons and have done with 
it? Why should I stand here lecturing you for what is, after all, just as much 
the responsibility of my generation as it is of yours, egging you on to trials at 
arms in which we have not succeeded? The reason I appeal to you is that my 
generation needs your help. 

"What help can we give one another, your generation and mine? Alliances 
usually involve some quid pro quo: what can we offer you? Ah, we will say, 
experience. How the very word used to irk us at your age. How we resented 
being chided for our views on life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness on account 
of our lack of experience. What had experience to tell us} That our fathers' 
generation had got us into the first World War, the great Depression, and the 
makings of the second World War. They had promised us two cars in every 
garage — then given us breadlines and bank failures. Indignantly, self-righteously, 
we rebelled. We did not carry our rebellion into the open. We just quietly dis- 
counted what we were told, and the rate of discount sometimes reached 100 per cent. 

"Can we do much better for you, in the name of experience today? I some- 
times wonder. We do not promise peace, it is true. But are we not talking about 
three cars in every garage? If I were you, I should be skeptical. I believe you 
are skeptical. Yet of what is your skepticism compounded if not our experience? 
Does this not suggest that experience may be worth something to you after all? 



LASELL LEAVES 



"Experience is a great teacher, but we must not expect too much of it. Un- 
refined by philosophy it is crude ore indeed. Reason must polish it and wisdom 
shape it to our use. If your generation is to profit by experience of any kind. — 
your own, my generation's, or anybody else's — ■ it must include the proper prin- 
ciples for putting it to use. 



"If civilization is to continue, it is the duty of each generation to hand on to 
the next this accumulated experience of mankind which we call knowledge. If 
civilization is to progress, the transmission should carry with it each time a net 
increment. 



"It is not the inevitable difference in age or outlook between the generations 
that impedes this progress. Differences in age leave fathers and sons and daughters 
on the same side of many questions. Differences in outlook merely proclaim the 
essential diversity of the human race. Pride hinders the transmission of knowledge 
by one generation to another. It is pride — parental authority based on nothing 
but the circumstance of parenthood and the compulsion of self-esteem; youthful 
self-assurance compounded of nothing but self-assurance and youth. Parental 
authority requires factual demonstration to most children beyond the age of four. 
As these children advance in years and discretion, the proper scope of parental 
authority diminishes and its role changes. The best we can hope for it at the 
stage represented by this ceremony today is that it will have ripened into a mutually 
enjoyable and profitable companionship. 

"But pride can be a besetting sin in youth as well as age. The child may, as 
Wordsworth says, be father of the man; but it is not father of the father. Time 
has given my generation certain advantages in the acquisition of knowledge which 
it will, in due course, also give to yours. You are not called upon, any more than 
we were, to begin all over again with Adam. It would be just as obstructive to the 
process of civilization for you to refuse, out of smugness or sheer defiance, the 
knowledge we hold out to you as it would be for us to force it upon you purely 
in the name of authority. 



"Members of the graduating class: we have given you a stake in the accumu- 
lated experience of mankind. The stake includes sundry principles. Some of these 
you may accept, others you will reject, still others you will, I hope, improve upon 
by invention. As you gradually assume the status of an older generation, the 
selection will become increasingly your own responsibility. Yet with the heritage 
we transmit to you go three sets of principles that we believe will serve you well. 
These are embodied respectively in the Old and New Testament, the Constitution 
of the United States, and the education you have received. In the Old and New 
Testament you will find the greatest ethical teachings ever propounded for the 
inspiration and guidance of man; in the Constitution of the United States with its 
Bill of Rights the most hopeful framework of government within which to carry 
out those teachings; and in your education perceptions of excellence that should 
enable you to combine with ethics and government the best of man's arts. Girt 
with this armor we welcome you as allies. Prospering in it, through your own 
efforts and your own intimations of immortality, we shall sing your praises and 
glory in your achievement."

FROM THE ALUMNAE 

1904 




Julia Martin 

As Reunion-time drew near, a letter 
arrived from Julia E. Martin of Boze- 
man, Montana. Enclosed were "proph- 
ecy pictures" of The Class of 1904, and 
from their yearbook, The Allerlei, we 
reprint six individual descriptions: 

Grace Hardy: Always found working 
for the LEAVES. Fond of arguing. Given 
to giggling in chapel. Loves to sing 
bass. Ethics her favorite pastime. Is 
very fond of acting; Shakespearean plays 
her favorite. "Neat, not gaudy." 

Josephine Holmes: Very sober and 
sedate. Called "Joe." Her distinguish- 
ing characteristic, needless to say, is 
her smile. Has common sense. "Love 
hath led her in the net." 

Gladys Patterson: Teachers' pet? 
Busy running affairs. Anxious for for- 
eign mail. Great aspirations. "I have 
not willingly planted a thorn in any 
man's bosom." 

Corinne Richter: Has a fondness for 
Harvard. Her highest ambition — to 
be somebody. Has a great affinity for 
English. Always on time. "My friend, 
clear your mind of cant." 



Alice Stahl: Sometimes called Marion. 
Friend of the oppressed. Always found 
studying French. Adores psychology 
and ethics. Sunday breakfast her favor- 
ite meal; why? Likes penolia sand- 
wiches and oranges. "Oh, give me 
peace!" 

Julia Martin: Deep thinker. Her 
poetry has been compared with that of 
Tennyson. Wishes everything explained. 
Why did she draw the best table in the 
dining room ? "Who says in verse what 
others say in prose." 

In her letter, Miss Martin continues: 
"I have many happy memories of the 
good times we shared in those long ago 
years. Lasell Junior College is truly 
progressing, but it is the Seminary, with 
teachers and many splendid 
which brings me happy 



the fine 

friends, 

thoughts." 

We were 
sentative of 



sorry there was no repre- 
The Class of 1904 on 
campus for Reunion, and we hope that 
these vignettes help to create some of 
the atmosphere of that June weekend 
when everyone played the game of "Do 
you remember when?"

September 1963 



The busy schedule of May-Florine 
Thielens Peeples continues. "After 
three winter months in Florida, I re- 
turned to plunge into meetings and 
spring luncheons here in Chicago. Our 
Chicago Alumnae Club prospers and 
the girls all enjoy the meetings — third 
Wednesday of each month. My son, Ed- 
ward, has returned from two years of 
duty in Formosa; Architect Richard has 
designed a $4,000,000 high school for 
the city of Appleton, Wisconsin; Persis- 
Jane (Peeples Cline x-'36) is most active 
in civic affairs in Scarsdale. She and 
husband John are looking forward to 
his 25th Reunion at Princeton. In April, 
I attended the Biennial Meetings of the 
Penwomen, followed by the D.A.R. 
Congress in Washington; the annual 
National Federation of Women's Clubs 
Convention is scheduled for early sum- 
mer in Atlantic City. On June 20th 
there will be a family get-together and 
a grand celebration; the occasion: my 
twin's (Elizabeth Thielens Miller x-'06) 
50th wedding anniversary."

did add, however, that she had a short 
trip South during February - — "to 
warm up !" 



Marion Hale Bottomley writes: "Just 
back from Glastonbury (Conn.) where 
we had a family reunion on my sister's 
80th birthday (Emily Hale Barnett x-'06). 
Among the twenty-three present were 
four Lasell girls — myself, daughter 
Mary (Bottomley '42), Nancy Gorton 
Ross '42 and Emily. 

"I noticed in the May 9th copy of the 
Burlington Free Press a notice of the 
death of Ruth Wheaton Austin x-'30. 
She was the wife of Col. Edward L. 
Austin, son of Warren R. Austin, our 
first ambassador to the United Nations." 

In early March, Lucy Aldrich Berston 
wrote to Josephine Woodward Rand: 

"A friend and I arrived in Lajolla 
(Calif.) on Tuesday, February 25th. As 
we were entering the hotel, someone 
said: "Hello". That was Mary Lumbard 
Courtney. We also found two friends 
from Flint and they had met Herma 
Schweitzer Comstock '21, former Lasell 
roommate of Ruth Rawlings Mott '21. 

"On Wednesday Julia Hamilton Peters 
came over from her winter home in 
Coronado prepared to stay a few days. 
Thursday we three went to the airport 
to meet Marian Halstead Fenton x-'ll, 
who flew down from Berkeley. Friday, 
Helen Sayre Jacobs '11 came for the day 
from her home in La Mesa. We all had 
lunch together and you can imagine the 
chatter. We called ourselves White 
Doves, reminisced about Mrs. Martin's 
"Tall and Beautiful', and Captain Ran- 
lett's drills. Tot McLean Hunt had expected 
to come but there were complications 
with grandchildren whose parents were 
on vacation. Expect to spend a week 
with Marian in Berkeley before leaving 
for Michigan about the first of April. 

"Everyone here is hoping to be on 
hand for our 55th. A friend who saw 
us all together said she thought Lasell 
must be the most remarkable of schools. 
She said she knew only one person who 
went to the school she attended and she 
has never heard from anyone in her class. 
We agreed, too, that we were glad to 
have attended the Seminary when we did. 
And we are all equally convinced that 
the present administration at Lasell is 
doing a wonderful job preparing girls 
for the kind of world in which they 
live today." 

In addition to Lucy Aldrich Berston's 
account of the Lajolla "reunion", came 
a note from Julia Hamilton Peters 
testifying to the grand time they en- 
joyed together.

1914 

A promise to baby-sit with "two dar- 
ling granddaughters, Sally and Virginia 
Lee" prevented Abbie Lee Viener Moss 
from joining the 50th Reunioners on 
campus. Abbie entertained the little 
girls while their parents attended a re- 
union celebration at Washington and 
Lee University. 

Abbie's former Lasell roommate, 
Maidie Dealey Moroney, reports the 
birth of her fourth great-grandchild, 
born July 10. 1963 — a birthday shared 
by Maidie's husband and son. Her 
winter activities included a Caribbean 
cruise — "lots of fun — but hot!" 

The 50th Reunion report will appear 
in the November issue of the LEAVES. 
Dorothy Hartshorn Underwood volun- 
teered to serve as Class Secretary, and 
requests: "Letters, news and pictures, 
please." 

1915 

Ida Beane Rice recently called at the 
Admissions Office. She requested a catalog 
for her granddaughter, whose interest in the 
College is understandable: great-great grand- 
mother, as well as grandmother, attended the 
Seminary. Ida continues to devote much time 
as a volunteer worker for the Massachusetts 
Correctional Institution for Women in 
Framingham. This winter The F'iends 
of Framingham, Inc. opened "Half-Way 
House," a Dorchester facility for wom- 
en whose effort toward rehabilitation is 
serious in their plan for "after release." 



1917 

On May 10, 1964, Marjorie Morrison 
Coburn represented Lasell at the Inaug- 
uration of Ralph Edward Gauvey as 
second president of Roger Williams 
Junior College in Providence, R. I. 

1918 

The new address — in Chicago — 
for Irvina Pomeroy Cooper is Apt. No. 2, 
6818 South Oglesby Avenue. 

The Class extends sincere sympathy to 
Harriet Morris Kenney, whose husband, 
Mr. Winthrop W. Kenney, passed away 
on February 17, 1964. 

1919 

Olive Chase Mayo represented the 
College at the Inauguration of Royal 
Merrill Frye as President of Belknap 
College, Center Harbor, New Hamp- 
shire, on Saturday, May 2, 1964.

"A detailed accounting of the 45th 
Reunion will be published in the No- 
vember LEAVES," writes Secretary Mer- 
cie V. Nichols. "In acknowledgement 
of our Class Reunion Gift, Priscilla's 
daughter, Virginia Wolfe Perkins '44, 
adds: 

" 'Dear Class of 1919: 

'I cannot thank you enough for what 
you have done in memory of my mother, 
Priscilla Alden Wolfe and for me. The 
Bulletin Board now installed in the 
lobby of the new classroom building is a 
lovely memorial gift. 

'I am proud to be a Lasell girl; a 
part of your family.' " 

1921 

Helen Jacobs x-'21 attended the 1964 
Class Night Exercises and reported a 
new address: 21 Thornton Road, Need- 
ham, Mass. 

Sincere sympathy is extended to Celina 
Belle Isle Forman, whose husband, Mr. 
Thadford Forman, passed away in the 
fall of 1963. 

1922 

One of Florida's visitors this past 
winter was Margaret Reid Perry, who 
spent some time in Naples.

The Class extends sincere sympathy 
to Harriette Case Bidwell and to Julia 
Case '32. Their mother, Mrs. Charles 
P. Case, passed away on April 27th at 
Brightview Convalescent Hospital in Avon, 
Conn. Mr. and Mrs. Case celebrated their 
65th wedding anniversary on February 14, 
1964. She was a charter member of the 
Historical Society of Simsbury, the DAR, and 
the Methodist Church of Simsbury, and was 
a director of the West Haven Home for the 
Aged. Besides her husband and two daugh- 
ters, Mrs. Case leaves a son, Charles P. Case, 
Jr., three granddaughters and five great- 
grandchildren. 

1923 

Louise Orr Daniels x-'23, writes: 
"Visited Claire Parker Everett on the 
Cape — she is as busy as ever ! To- 
gether with Olive Eastman Aspey '22 
and her husband, we enjoyed a day with 
Emma Perley Dewar x-'24 in New 
Hampshire." 

Mary Godard Hadley x-'23: "Older 
son, Duke, graduated from Syracuse 
University in 1952, and is now with 
Vedder Root in Syracuse, N.Y. Young- 
er son, George, — Colgate '60, M.A. 
Columbia '62. He is now in Personnel 
work with N.Y.U." 

"The highlights of my year," reports 
Helen Hinshaw Toohey, "are the oc- 
casional visits with our children and 
grandchildren — our daughter and her 
family are in Cleveland; our son and 
family are in Westfield, N.J." 

"Anne Daugherty Slater: "My Indian- 
apolis friend, Midge Lykins Rust '28, 
passed away in August, 1963- She is 
survived by her husband and three chil- 
dren." 

Mabel Gleason Fletcher announces the 
marriage of her daughter, Susan, to Daniel F. 
Schultz on Saturday, February 8, 1964, in 
the First Methodist Church, Carthage, NY. 

"We had a wonderful Reunion", 
writes Claire Parker Everett, "though 
we missed all the girls who generally 
come. This year I'm looking forward 
to attending Norman's 40th Reunion at 
Dartmouth." 

Sincere sympathy is extended to Jean- 
nette Merrick Moss on the death of her 
husband, Robert F. Moss, on April 23, 
1964 in Elizabeth, N.J. 

Mr. Moss was president of the Ori- 
ental Steel Products Co. in Tokyo before 
World War II. He was a former leader 
of the American Colony in Japan, 
president of the American Association 
on Tokyo for two years and was chair- 
man of the American School in Japan 



for 17 years and was a charter member 
of the American Club of Tokyo. 

He returned to the United States in 
1940 after many years in Tokyo and 
later became vice-president of the Sci- 
entific Concrete Service Corp., and was 
a leader in the- civic life of Elizabeth 
(N.J.). He also had served in an ad- 
visory capacity to the Office of Strategic 
Services during World War II. He re- 
tired five years ago. 

Those of us who have visited Jean 
and Bob in their lovely home, filled with 
the many mementos of their happy years 
in Japan, will always remember him as a 
cordial and most gracious host. 

1924 

The 1924 Reunion contingent in- 
cluded : Helen B. Perry, Frances Badger, 
Katherine Webb, Dorothy Redman 
Finch, Geraldine Wilder Bogart, Mar- 
guerite Murray Keene, Esther Palmer 
Dwinell and her guest, Louise Puckett 
Neill '23. A complete report of the 
40th will appear in November. 

1925 

Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Parmenter (Ruth 
Shepard) did a "repeat" performance 
as proud parents at the 1964 Commence- 
ment exercises. Daughter Linda, vice 
president of the Senior Class, received 
an A.A. degree in Liberal Arts on 
June 7th. Janet (Parmenter Ellinwood) 
was graduated in 1956. 

1926 

Luanna Eyler Crane writes that she 
has sold her North Carolina home and 
is now building in Boca Raton, Florida. 
Her daughter is working in Phoenix 
(Arizona), and her son will continue at 
Law School following June graduation 
from the University of North Carolina. 

1927 

Dear Girls, 

While in San Francisco in May — a 
Convention business-trip with my hus- 
band — I had an opportunity to get 
in touch with two classmates. Had a 
short visit with my former Lasell room- 
mate, Minerva Damon Ludewig, who 
really loves San Francisco living. She 
maintains her wonderful glow of ex- 
uberance; is ever the enthusiastic and 
trophy-winning golfer; and almost prom- 
ised to come East in the not too distant 
future!

Also chatted with Madalyn Patten 
Hoberg. Her daughter, son-in-law and 
the three grandchildren will be living in 
the East for two years. Madalyn plans 
to visit them — but the trip will be a 
short and fast one. She and her husband 
are looking forward to vacationing on 
his new boat, which had just arrived. 

Doris Wilson Lehners will come for 
her annual Cape vacation, and we shall 
get together there. 

I do want to call your attention to 
the Building Fund Bazaar, which will 
be held at the College on Nov. 17th. 
There will be a variety of tables and I 
hope you will send a contribution — 
objects you may be tired of may be the 
answer to someone's dream. Just send 
a note to The Alumnae Office so we 
can plan on your contribution. Perhaps 
those in the area will agree to partici- 
pate actively; the "far-aways" will want 
to be represented. The Bazaar will be 
one of the highlights of 1964 and I am 
sure The Class of 1927 will want to 
insure its success. 

From Marjorie Maxfield Smith: "Still 
remembering the beautiful White Christ- 
mas in Washington, D. C, where I 
lived for so many years. Always enjoy 
hearing from Esther Josselyn, who keeps 
me up-to-date with Lasell news." 

A request for a transcript came from 
Jeanette Smith Janes x-'27. Her current 
address is 30 Marion Road, Upper Mont- 
clair, N. J.

1928 

Josephine Laughton Hopkins served 
as the Lasell delegate to the Inaugura- 
tion of William Walsh Hagerty as presi- 
dent of Drexel Institute of Technology 
in Philadelphia. Soon after the May 
12th affair Jo wrote: "It was delightful! 
And being Lasell's representative has 
done wonders for my ego ! The Drexel 
invitation specifically included an es- 
cort — Dayton went with me — and we 
arrived in Philadelphia in time for me 
to go to the Academy first to leave my 
regalia and locate my chair. At the 
dinner, preceding the ceremony, we were 
seated so as to enjoy an excellent view 
of the head table. Our table host was 
a Drexel trustee; table companions in- 
cluded the representative of Mills Col- 
lege and her husband; the president of 
the Woman's Medical College and a 
woman doctor from their faculty who 
was his guest; and the Northwestern 
delegate and his wife, whom we par- 
ticularly enjoyed. There were no speech- 
es at the dinner — merely a few intro- 
ductions and additional instructions. 




Jo Laughton Hopkins '28 



We left the Bellevue promptly at seven- 
thirty; the delegates went to the Ball- 
room of the Academy, where I was 
welcomed with open arms by a very 
sweet 'young thing.' Representing 
"Western College for Women, she lives 
in Wellesley and Lasell was the nearest 
and most familiar 'among-those-present' 
to her. The inauguration was a most 
impressive experience and one I shan't 
soon forget. 

"The entire week was a hectic one. . . 
there was a Welfare Board meeting in 
Toms River prior to my leaving for 
Philadelphia; on Wednesday evening we 
attended a wedding anniversary cele- 
bration; on Thursday there was a 
luncheon for a retiring director of the 
Welfare Board staff; and Friday brought 
the dedication of the visitor's center at 
the Batsto Restoration ■ — attended by 
the Govenor, several state senators, the 
chairman of the New Jersey Tercen- 
tenary Celebration, the Constable and the 
Bailiff of the Isle of Jersey — plus 
some 5,000 other folks. For Saturday — 
since the week had been an uneventful 
one — Dayton had tickets for the eve- 
ning performance of a Gilbert & Sulli- 
van operetta at the Academy of Music. 
(He bought these while waiting for me 
between the dinner and the inaugura- 
tion.) 

"This week's normal routine seems a 
bit dull: had lunch with Jo Holbrook 
Metzger '22 who will be my guest in

Maine during the month of August. Be- 
fore coming to Weld, she will spend 
a month at Nubble Light with Lynn 
(Metzger Pharo '45) and family. We 
did enjoy the spring luncheon meeting 
of the Philadelphia-South Jersey Club - — 
but did miss the Misses Clemens (Isa- 
bella '01 and Emily x-'03), who were 
preparing to leave for their annual va- 
cation in Scotland." 

Mr. and Mrs. Norman E. MacCuspie 
(Marjorie Winslow) announce the en- 
gagement of their daughter, Jean, to 
William James Robinson, son of Mr. 
and Mrs. Walter Scott Robinson of 
Dorchester. Mass. 

"Still spend many weekends at the 
Cape — plus all summer", writes Ber- 
nice Kent Ennis x-'28. "See Eleanor 
McKenney Black '30 and Lillian Bethel 
two or three times a year — and Ruth 
Manness Sharkey x-'38 comes to the 
Cape from Chicago for her vacation." 

The Class extends sincere sympathy to 
Barbara Lawson and Gertrude Wagner. 
Mrs. P. W. Lawson passed away on 
May 28, 1964 in Newport, Vermont. 
Gertrudes mother, Mrs. E. S. Wagner, 
died on May 19, 1964 at the age of 84. 



1929 

Newly-elected Secretary, Rosamond 
Cornell Cannon, will forward a lengthy 
account of the MOST successful 35th 
Reunion for November publication. Be- 
fore leaving for vacation, Roz requested: 
"Do include a portion of Mydie's (Page 
Haven) enthusiastic note." So — until 
November: 

"Hail Alma Mater! What a really 
great Reunion we had ! I am sure the 
Class of 1929 is unanimous in its ap- 
proval of the gathering of the clan 
after Commencement. We had so much 
time to visit together — and leisurely — 
and to rediscover the common bond 
which holds us so close, even though 
Father Time marches on. 

"The girls on the Committee did a 
wonderful job — provides truly The 
Frosting on the Cake. Maudie (Wil- 
liams Gittleson) and Betty (Wells Tuttle) 
were my house-guests until Tuesday, the 
16th. We feel strongly that an 'interim' 
Reunion should be held — possibly for 
those in the New England area. We 
even envisioned a huge tent erected in 
our pasture — seriously, it might be 
worth a try. How about it?" 



1930 

Sue Morgan Williams and Dottie 
Meeker Pearce and her husband enjoyed 
lunching together recently. Sue reports 
that the Pearce's took a trip around the 
world last year, ,then spent the summer 
at the Cape. They are now building a 
winter home in Florida. She and hus- 
band, Doug, spent a few weeks in 
Florida during the winter and then 
went on to the Hawaiian Islands for 
two weeks. 

In February, Doris Hat:h Rand had 
her first one man show at the Marble- 
head (Mass.) Arts Association Art Gal- 
lery. Doris holds many awards for her 
work, including a first prize for her 
watercolors in the Rockport Amateur 
Art Festival in 1962 and 1963. 

Mr. and Mrs. Richard B. Somers 
(Jeanette Gessner) announce the mar- 
riage of their daughter, Jean (Somers

on April 18, 1964. 

Susan Taylor, daughter of Dorothy 
Inett Taylor, has completed a course in 
Physical Therapy at the University of 
Connecticut. Susan, vice-president of 
Kappa Kappa Gamma, was presented 
with a scholarship award by Connecticut 
alumnae of the sorority. Last year Susan 
was voted the Most Outstanding Junior; 
was honored in like manner as a Senior. 
Sue's summer affiliation is with the New 
England Medical Center in Boston. 



1931 

Rear Admiral and Mrs. Henry S. 
Monroe (Karin Eliasson) of McLean, 
Virginia, announce the engagement of 
their daughter Ann Eliasson, to David

student at American University in Wash- 
ington, D.C., her fiance graduated from 
the American University in 1963 and 
is now with the American Express 
Company in Wurtzburg, Germany. A 
summer wedding is planned.

"The daughter of a friend of mine 
in Essex Jet. (Vermont) has been ac- 
cepted at Lasell and will enter in the

Barbara Hover Lallou writes from 10619 
Hillview, Chatsworth, California. 

"We have been in Chatsworth ■ — locat- 
ed at the very tail end of the San Fernando 
Valley — for about five years. My hus- 
band and I run a Hay, Grain and English 
Tack plus Western Equipment store. We 
also buy, sell, show and train American 
Saddlebred horses. 

"Our oldest daughter, Barbara Anne, 
completed two years at the University of 
Southern California — then married an 
architect. I am a grandmother — it 
sounds dreadful but I love it. My grand- 
son was born in September, 1962 — and, 
of course — 'is the only grandson in the 
world.' Susan, my middle child, is a senior 
at the University of California, majoring 
in mathematics and accounting. She is 
pinned to a pre-dental student and in- 
tends to help him finish college when she 
graduates. This leaves us with one daugh- 
ter at home. Dari, fourteen, a sophomore 
in high school, is quite a girl. For the 
past two years we have traveled the Coast 
showing her saddlebred gelding and she is 
now rated one of the five top saddleseat 
riders in the state. Last summer she modeled 
to earn money for more show equipment — 
and is now being interviewed for television 
work. 

"We love this small town. I am just a 
'country hick' at heart. Once in a great while 
I miss the snow but then we go to Big Bear 
or up to Mammouth and I am satisfied. 
This year, as usual, we took a group of 
youngsters to the Rose Parade. We go up 
the night before — fortified with sleeping 
bags, blankets, hot chocolate and coffee. 

"Often wonder about Anita Fitzgerald 
and Dottie Heagy — also Ruth McLaugh- 
lin, Peggy Card, Jane Abbott and many, 
many more. Would love to see Lasellites 
anytime they come our way. Hope to re- 
turn East for our 25th ■ — come June '66."

Mr. and Mrs. Donald J. Fournier 
(Barbara Schilf '40) 



With permission we reprint Marc Dro- 
gin's feature article, published in the Sun- 
day Pictorial edition of The New Haven 
Register on February 2, 1964. The ac- 
companying photograph of Mr. and Mrs. 
Fournier (Barbara Schilf) was taken by 
Mr. Drogin, who titles the story, "The 
Fourniers of Bethany: Country Life is Won- 
derful." 

Snow was still coming down, across the 
hill, down through the tall grass and al- 
most over the rabbit tracks sketched on 
the surface of an earlier fall. Something 
about the cold snow air made clouds from 
breath and gave a soft plump sound as the 
horses moved. 

A tug on the reins and Barbara Four- 
nier wheeled her horse about, to face 
down across the split-rail fences, the ken- 
nel, barns and ranch home, down to a 
dirty slash in the landscape that was 
Route 69 running toward New Haven. 

"It's a nice life being outdoors all the 
time," she said. "I don't think I could 
ever be inside in an office. I would die." 

Don Fournier wheeled his huge red 
chestnut stallion about and into the wind, 
watched the huge animal lift and drop its 
feet, settling into balance onto the hill- 
side and into the wind. 

"Lord, we'd never go back to New Ha- 
ven. I haven't been in New Haven in three 



weeks." Irish, the stallion, held. Whiskey 
the terrier in a sack hung from Fournier's 
shoulder was motionless, snow ( slowly 
settling on his whiskers. 

"You know," said Mrs. Fournier, "I 
have a registered letter that's been wait- 
ing down there at the Westville Post Of- 
fice for three days. One of these days I 
suppose I'll get it." 

Back around into the snow turned the 
mounts, and the Fourniers and Whiskey 
ambled uphill and along the crest, white 
snow on the husband's red hunting jacket, 
whiter on his wife's black coat, melting 
on the horse's flanks and Whiskey's whisk- 
ers. 

The Fourniers do not live way off in 
nowhere, out beyond civilization. Only 
eight miles down the grey slash highway 
is the New Haven green. Bethany is not 
the great beyond. 

To the Fourniers, though, it is a para- 
dise — the native resident and her West 
Haven-born husband have turned their al- 
most-hundred acres' property into a par- 
adise of sorts. 

There she raises and breeds Norwich 
Terriers, and takes them to dog shows. 
There he boards and schools and trains 
his horses, and takes them to horse shows. 

Mrs. Fournier, by the kitchen door later, 
kicked the snow from her boots, let Whis-

LASELL LEAVES 



key slip through the door. "I'm probably 
one of the two largest breeders of drop- 
ear Norwich Terriers in the country. 
There are, here and there, people who 
might have a litter now and then, but 
mostly prick-ear." 

Her kennel, she added, wiping the frost 
from the kitchen window facing across 
to the structure, has from 20 to 40 of the 
little creatures depending on the size of 
litters. Their breeder for the past dozen 
years, she has raised 15 champions since 
the first puppy showed up at her door as 
a gift from a neighbor. 

Back then she had taken the dog to 
a kennel for breeding. The owner had died 
and his wife, who knew nothing of dogs, 
was going to take over the kennel. "So 
I decided that if she can do it, I can do 
it. I came home and built a kennel. 

"I'd say I probably show about 15 
times a year, or maybe 20. I cover the 
big shows — New York, Westminster, 
Boston. I go of course to New Haven 
and Hartford, I've shown at Troy, I'm go- 
ing to Worcester tomorrow." 

"She's got enough ribbons," said Don 
pouring coffee, "to paper the living room. 
Dogs, dogs, dogs." Which just made 
his wife smile again. 

"The same for his horses — that came 
by accident too. All these things seem 
to happen by accident. We started to 
make the stable over. It used to be a hay 
barn for storage, and we were going to 
make it into one or two box stalls until 
it sort of got away from us. Instead, 
we ended up with 10 box stalls. We 
had our own horses and then started to 
board others." 

Schnapps with the coffee, and one can 
almost forget how chilling the snow was. 

Mrs. Fournier showed a picture of Irish 
leaping at a show, husband Don atop 
him. "I'm going to start training horses 
again. I did two years ago," he said, re- 
counting the names of some of his cham- 
pions — reserved champion down at 
Golden Bridge, champion at Litchfield, 
reserve champion again somewhere else. 
"That's Irish and the brood mare Gena." 

On what sporting field do Elm City 
Kennel Club Show Chairman and terrier- 
breeder Barbara, and champion horseman 
Don, get together? 



"The fox hunt," said the wife, and Don 
nodded happily. "It's wonderful. You're 
out there early in the morning and rid- 
ing behind the huntsman and the whip." 

"The best thing," added Don, "about 
hunting is just to hear the hounds when 
they get the scent of the fox." 

Don and Barbara Fournier love almost 
nothing better than the formal old fox- 
hunt on a cold winter day — joining 
with 140 to 160 others on opening day 
at Golden Bridge, on the New York line, or 
at Middlebury and Litchfield. 

Running down a fox can take up to 90 
minutes, an entire hunt from four to six 
hours. Festive and formal, the hunt serves 
a purpose — ridding the area of pesky 
foxes who, with or without the hunt, 
carry bounty on their heads. 

It's when the fox is holed that Bar- 
bara Fournier's favorites play their part: 
Norwich Terriers, low, strong little beasts 
with a quizzical eye, who are as happy 
in apartments as out in the field. 

"They don't run with the hounds," 
Don Fournier explained. "You just carry 
then in that little sack I wore. When the 
hounds ground a fox you take this terrier 
out and send him into the fox hole. 

"He chases the fox out of the place, 
and then the hunt starts all over again. 
Whiskey, or the others, will stop when 
you call. You pick them up and sack 
them again. It's quite a trick to getting 
them used to the riding and jumping and 
everything else." 

Whiskey, grey whiskered, stood to get 
crumb-cake. Mrs. Fournier's Norwich 
Terrier took best of breed two years ago 
at Madison Square Garden. 

"There's quite a lot to riding to 
hounds," said Don, relaxed, stretching his 
legs out in front of the fire. "Tallyho? 
That's when somebody sees the fox. But 
Yoicks?" 

"Yoicks!" said his wife. "Now I've 
heard folks yell Yoicks ! But really I nev- 
er know what they mean." Whiskey got 
some more crumb-cake. 

A few minutes later Don Fournier was 
deep in a hunt club quarterly, his wife in 
a scrap book pasting binge, the dog on 
the couch, the horse in the stable. And 
the snow still fell. 

Sometimes Bethany is a long way away. 
If you want it to be.

Jean Hardy Canedy sends word that her 
daughter, Ann, will enter Lasell in Sep- 
tember as a member of the Class of 1966. 

From Barbara Leonard Wiser: "Hus- 
band is athletic director at New Milford 
High School. We have three children, 
Terry, nine, Michael six and Laurie, four. 
We spend the summers at our cabin on 
Sheepscott Lake, Palermo, Maine. I'd love 
to see any Lasell girls in that area." 

Marjorie Ray Blackett paid a visit to 
the Lasell campus late in the Spring. Mar- 
jorie said she hadn't been back for several 
years — and hadn't seen a familiar face in 
ages. Her current address: 1102 Colegate 
Road, Marietta, Ohio. 



1943 

When she arrived for Reunion, Jean 
Campbell '44 brought an April issue of 
the Dundee Courier and Advertiser. Fea- 
tured on the Women's page of the Scot- 
tish daily was an interesting story — with 
picture — of Betty Gorton Collier. The 
author, Fiona, reports: "I spent an en- 
joyable afternoon with Elizabeth Collier 
at Chapel House, Kingskettle. Mrs. Col- 
lier is the wife of Paul S. Collier, whose 
firm in America, the Pfandler-Permutit 
Company, merged with the engineering 
firm of Henry Balfour & Co., Leven. The 
Colliers and their children, Paul, Betsy, 
Susan and Ann, have been in Scotland for 
almost two years now. 'We put in addi- 
tional central heating, and I got busy with 
a paint brush,' Mrs. Collier said. 'Instead 
of coping with the rather rambling kit- 
chen quarters we had a small, compact 
kitchen installed beside the dining-room, 
which saves work. In America, women 
cut housework and shopping to the min- 
imum, to leave time for hobbies and en- 
tertaining. I would far rather be on the 
golf course than out shopping!' Mrs. Col- 
lier is a member of the Fife committee of 
the Roosevelt Memorial Polio Fund." 

Jean Phillips Canning happily reports: 
"My older daughter's very best friend 
is the daughter of Patricia Taylor Hender- 
son '40." 

From Jean Burroughs Rawson: "Noth- 
ing too exciting — busy with the three 
children, plus club work, plus knitting — 
and, of course, the house. Do enjoy hear- 
ing news of Lasell and classmates." 

The present address of Jean Behrle 
Wagner x-'43 is 66 Cooladge Drive, 
Huntington, L.I., N.Y. 



Rachel Kellogg was recently appointed 
to the position of Office Manager for the 
New Britain (Conn.) office of the Hartford 
County Bar Association. 

Sue Lange Riddlemoser writes that she 
is so sorry to have missed the Reunion. 

"We bought a house in Bound Brook 
(N.J.)" says Sue, "and we're going to 
'stay put' until the boys are through high 
school. Believe me — we have seen enough 
new places for awhile. 

"My oldest boy won a scholarship to 
the Phillips Academy Summer Session at 
Andover (Mass.) I hope we can stop at 
Lasell when we drive him there. 

"I have my Real Estate license and am 
selling homes — never a dull moment." 

For Reunion, Jean O'Brien Heavey 
sent "regrets," but a promise to be on 
hand for the 25th. Jean is enjoying a 
new home in Annandale, Virginia, and 
adds: "Son Brian, now 15, is a swimming 
enthusiast; we spend the spare(?) time 
attending local meets." 

"Best good wishes for a successful Re- 
union" came from Joe Leroy Bramm. Joe 
is "extremely interested in the work of the 
Republican party. Attended a spring con- 
ference in Washington, and am a member 
of the Alabama State Executive Com- 
mittee."

(Nonie Lederman '45) 

Ursula Burns Keely announces the ar- 
rival of their second adopted son, Robert 
Clayton Keely, born January 23, 1964. 
"Brendan, now three, is a delightful little 
boy." 

Althea Taylor Goldberg writes that all 
is going well. Her son, Alan (14) and 
daughter, Ruth (7) keep her busy — "plus 
the usual P.T.A., taxi service and getting 
to lessons on time." 

Marilyn Lucey Richardson's daughters, 
Connie and Suzanne, attend Rosemary Hall 
in Greenwhich, Conn. Nonie Lederman 
Grossman's Linsey is a tenth grader at 
Beaver Country Day School; Heidi is en- 
rolled at Shady Hill. Nonie adds: "Linsey 
is a dedicated ballet dancer, and Heidi is a 
very serious pianist." 

"After residing in Milford, Conn, for 
nine years, Harold received a promotion 
and transfer," writes Marilyn Ford Samp- 
son. "In the manner of Washington, we 
crossed the Delaware and are now settled 
in Wilmington — 1216 Faun Road, Gray- 
lyn Court. Had a delightful visit with 
Lynn Metzger Pharo; together we at- 
tended the spring luncheon of the Phil- 
adelphia-South Jersey alumnae group." 

1946 

"While talking with Skidmore's new 
alumnae secretary the other day, I sudden- 
ly realized I had not forwarded a change 
of address," writes Janet Garland Wilson. 
"We moved recently to 1131 Adams Road, 
Schenectady, N.Y. It is in an area of 
large and older homes, locally known as 
the G.E. Plot. Unlike other plots, the 



bodies here are warm and active. Our 
house is a 60-year-old, center-hall colonial 

— in excellent condition ■ — and to top it 
off — has a captain's walk. David has 
just been named manager of a group in 
the Advanced Technology Lab at G.E., 
and we are feeling particularly fortunate." 

Jean Theil Weld reports: "Like every- 
one else — our children are growing up 

— Gail is 11, Leslie, 8 and David 5. I'm 
busy with Junior League and P.T.A., but 
Dave and I do manage to get away from 
it all every winter. Last year we had a 
wonderful European vacation — this year 
a trip to the Barbados. 

"We do see the College each summer 
as we travel to Maine. The changes are 
wonderful !" 

"My husband, Bob, is Eastern Editor of 
Leather and Shoes — a trade publication 
for the shoe industry," writes Patricia Lu- 
ther Wilkin. "I keep busy with our two 
girls, Holly, 6, — Heather, 3. Also enjoy 
teaching Sunday School and participating 
in productions of the Walpole Footlight- 
ers, our community theater." 

1947 

"Another Traveler Visit" — a series of 
articles by Virginia Bohlin of the Boston 
Traveler staff — brought forth this March 
headline: "Dynamo Starts Day on Head." 

"Mrs. Robert Palmer of Hingham starts 
each day by standing on her head. And if 
that's the energy secret of this dynamo ■ — 
a talented, young mother who packs more 
activity into a day than most mothers do 
in a month — then everyone should greet 
the morning on his noggin." 

Mrs. Robert Palmer of Hingham is none 
other than Dorothy Papani. Miss Bohlin 
continues: 

"She paints with a technique all her 
own — mostly angels on gossamer sheer 
fabrics with water-based paints mixed 
with gesso. She plays the piano, the or- 
gan, and the guitar. She writes poetry 
and is working on her first book, "And 
The Meek Shall Inherit The Earth.' She 
studies philosophy nights and plays dupli- 
cate bridge. She teaches Sunday School at 
Old Ship Church and she plays golf. She 
has modeled for Dior and has had her 
own ceramics studio. She designs and 
makes her own clothes. But the biggest 
thing she ever designed was her own home 
in the World's End section of Hingham 
ten years ago. 

"There's not a straight line in the 
house. It darts out at all angles to fit 
the contour of the lot, which is all ledge. 
The house is on five levels and has no 
doors on the first floor except on closets 
and bathrooms.' The living-room, with its 



LASELL LEAVES 



29 



18-foot ceiling, has two wrought iron bal- 
conies at different levels — the top one. 
with its spinet piano and leopard-cov- 
ered lounge, is used as the music room. 
On the wall of the music room hang 
two non-objective paintings by the Egyp- 
tian artist, Fouad Kamel, with whom Dor- 
othy has studied. 

"There are 11 rooms in the house, plus 
a spacious foyer of polished flagstones 
with a floor garden of schefflera plants. 
The kitchen — a combination of brick, 
hand crafted copper and sunny yellow 
porcelain ■ — Dorothy's studio and the 
family room are all open to each other, 
or really one. So Mother can paint while 
a cake is baking or the boys — Nicholas, 
7, and Bobby, 5 — are playing. The 
boys' bedroom, a bright blend of yellows, 
reds and oranges, is on the second floor 
atop the bluestone steps leading out of 
the family room. This is a relaxing type 
of room with a comfortable sofa in front 
of the big fieldstone fireplace and lots of 
Dorothy's paintings and flowers every- 
where. African war shields of bamboo 
screen Dorothy's studio from this room. 
Besides the angels which she so often 
paints Dorothy also likes to do paintings 
of boats and buildings that have a distinct- 
ly European flavor to them." 

And when we requested a picture to 
accompany a portion of the Traveler's story, 
Dorothy answered: "I am extremely proud 
of my association with Lasell, and have 
so many pleasant memories of the fun days 
at the Casino and at Hawthorne. The en- 
closed picture was taken by Mr. O'Cal- 
laghan, Staff Photographer of the Traveler. 
The painting beside the fireplace is one 
of my 'Angels'. It is painted on silk 
fabric which I treat and stretch across a 
frame — my husband is the frame mak- 
er. Thank you for your interest, and al- 
ways my best good wishes to the Col- 
lege." 

1948 

"Last March we moved into our new 
home," writes Florence Johnson Kerdok. 
"Still work in Boston as a Dental Hy- 
gienist and commute each day. We plan 
a February vacation in Puerto Rico." 

Shirley Thorne Brady's children, Mat- 
thew and Susan Lynn are now three and 
eight months, respectively. Shirley writes: 
"Have been looking forward to the news 
about the reunion and the gals — sorry 
that I couldn't make it — My husband, 
who is an officer in the Elks, and I, at- 
tended a convention the same weekend."

Kay Poore Hamel sent this early Reun- 
ion report. More to come later. 

"Jean Sargent Lee and Diane Palady 
Barry are the new 1949 Class Secretaries 
— plus yours truly. Somebody told me 
that our class has very little news in the 
LEAVES. I do hope we can have more ac- 
tivity. 

"Our reunion luncheon was held at the 
home of Audrey Mitchell McKibben in 
Dedham. There were 28 present — in- 
cluding our "Class Baby' Debbie Leighton, 
daughter of Pam Johns Leighton. Debbie 
is now 14 and will be a high school soph- 
omore in the fall. We all seemed to have 
lots to chatter about — and had a won- 
derful time looking over the Lasell scrap- 
books that Nat Hall Campbell sent for our 
perusal. We missed Nat — but hopefully 
will have her with us at the 20th. 

"Present at the luncheon were: Nan

"I was pleased to receive a letter from 
Chris Oliveto Davis" writes Sally Hughes 
Fasick, "telling me that her husband,

Shirley Richman Miller tells us she is 
now an assistant Brownie leader. "My 
three-year-old, Cindy, is our mascot ■ — 
loves every minute of it. Robin, however, 
hasn't quite decided whether she likes the 
idea of having Mother as one of the lead- 
ers. I think she wishes I would stick to 
my hobby of arranging flowers with the 
Garden Club — or some of my other do- 
it-yourself home projects." 

Jean Woods McNeilly and husband, Bill, 
have two children ■ — William Warner Mc- 
Neilly, III, born September 28, 1959 and

We have the following account of Rena 
Silverman's 1963 European trip. 

"Flew to Europe on an 18-day trip. 
Visited London, Dublin, Edinburgh, Brus-

penhagen. While in England, we also vis- 
ited Shakespeare's country, toured the 
coast of Ireland, drove through the Tros- 
sachs in Scotland — then on to Brugge 
and Ghent in Belgium. We visited Ge- 
neva, took the cable car to Mt. Blanc; 
on to Denmark where we visited Ham- 
let's castle — and others in Copenhagen. 
From Denmark we took the ferry to 
Sweden." 

"We have just moved to Martinsville,

Earl H. Ordway 

One of the favorite members of the Lasell Family, Earl H. Ordway, died 
suddenly on Sunday, June 28, 1964. Best known to alumnae as Coach of Crew, 
Superintendent of Buildings and Grounds and member of the faculty, Mr. Ordway 
had been associated with the College for 61 years. 

In 1948 he was elected a member of the Board of Trustees; in 1949, was 
appointed to the Executive Committee; and the following year, was voted to serve 
on the Finance Committee of the Board. Shortly after his retirement in 1959, the 
brick dormitory on Maple Street was named in his honor. 

A half-brother of Lasell's late President, Dr. Guy M. Winslow, Mr. Ordway 
is survived by his wife, Frances (Whitney) Ordway; a daughter, Barbara Ordway 
Brewer '35; a son, David; a sister, Marion Ordway Corley '11; and four grand- 
children. At the request of the family, contributions in his memory may be made

Faith 

I looked for God in morning skies and evening 

In men's minds everywhere. 

I looked for Him in dim carved chambers 

I did not find Him there. 

I look no more 

And yet — God one day, listening, 

May hear an unsaid prayer 

May softly furl wide golden wings unbidden 

And stand beside my chair.

LASELL LEAVES 



FROM PRESIDENT TEWKSBURY .... 

It is interesting to note, over the years, how the subject offerings at Lasell 
have changed. In one of the early Seminary catalogues inlaying pearl, oak 
carving, fashioning wax flowers and Grecian painting were among the talents 
that could be developed by a student. 

However, as the role of women in our American culture changed, our cur- 
riculum changed, too. This is a never-ending process. A glance at some of the 
new course offerings will make this apparent. 

It has long been felt that students have had the opportunity to become 
well-informed on the contributions of Western civilization, but that the cultures 
of Asia and Africa, for example, were much neglected in American colleges. For 
many years Lasell has offered a course in Russian history; next semester, African 
history will, be added to the curriculum. This will deal with the geography of 
Africa, racial and language distribution of native population groups — their cul- 
ture and art. The semester will conclude with the story of the impact of the 
World Wars, the termination of European control, and the resulting patterns of 
emerging nations. 

The present expectation is that alternating semesters of work can be offered 
in Russian, Asiatic, and African history so that many students may learn of 
several cultures during their two years at Lasell. 

An understanding of our own national government is so important that a 
detailed study of its intricacies will be included to supplement American history 
next semester. 

Last Spring an experimental course which we labelled Approaches to World 
Problems was instituted. It has an approximation of an "honors" seminar, which 
deals with the historical, sociological, educational, and economic perspectives of 
rich and poor nations. It concerns itself with how world problems appear from 
the perspective of the artist, the scientist, the social scientist, the man of religion 
and modern man in general. Much time is given to investigation of problems of 
modern society which especially interest the Senior girl. 

An additional offering in sociology next Spring will be Marriage and the 
Family. This concerns itself with such topics as dating, mate selection, success and 
adjustment in marriage, parenthood and the conflicts and crises which affect 
the changing patterns of the American family. 

A college curriculum is never static; instead, it is vital and constantly subject 
to change, thus representing the society which it reflects. Conventional subject 
matter is revised as advances are made in the realm of human knowledge. New 
courses are added as society brings new emphases; others are deleted as their 
usefulness or interest in them becomes less apparent. Sometimes those of us 
who remember "the good old days" are sorrowful because some favorite subject 
has disappeared (sewing, for example, is a lost art), but we must resign ourselves 
to the fact that the world moves on and a new generation requires new approaches. 
All of which is a way of saying that Lasell does give attention to the restless 
tides of a changing world and attempts to accommodate its program to them.

THE ALUMNAE BAZAAR 



Tuesday, November 17, will long be remembered as a most exciting day 
of the 1964-65 college year. The occasion was the first alumnae-sponsored Bazaar, 
held at Winslow Hall for the benefit of The Building Fund. A profit of more 
than $3600 has been realized from the one-day venture. 



General Chairman for the Bazaar was Rosalie Brightman Rosen, popular 
Life Secretary of the Class of 1927 and a member of the College Board of Trustees. 
Plans were formulated early last spring and during the following months details 
were assigned to various committees. Over one hundred Boston-area alumnae 
participated in making the Bazaar a tremendous success; committee chairmen 
and co-chairmen included:

Alumnae Clubs worked enthusiastically in support of the project; special 
thanks are extended to the Western Massachusetts girls who forwarded the items 
collected for their own Silent Auction, and to the Bridgeport and Philadelphia- 
South Jersey groups for their additional contributions of unique Christmas 
Decorations. The spontaneous response from faculty, college personnel, countless 
alumnae and other friends was truly appreciated — for weeks "every day was a 
Christmas Day" — the mails brought innumerable packages, each containing at- 
tractive saleable items.

The Seniors of Carpenter House volunteered to canvas the campus; sold books 
of chances; reported total sales of $127.80; claimed a case of coffee with a 
"winning number." Afternoon entertainment was provided by The Lamp Lighters; 
The Dance Club, accompanied by "Uncle Louie" Heffermehl; and by Brenda 
Anderson '64, former Massachusetts State Champion baton twirler. Local trades- 
people donated merchandise for resale; college suppliers furnished many useful 
and necessary items. 

Louise Woolley Morgan '23 took time from a busy radio schedule to serve 
as mistress of ceremonies at the gift drawing. Award winners included campus 
residents, Auburndale neighbors, His Honor the Mayor of Newton, relatives of 
alumnae, and lucky ones within three Alumnae Clubs. 

Friendliness, enthusiasm and true loyalty were the keynote of this highly 
successful Bazaar. Rosalie adds the following: 

"The success of the recent Alumnae Bazaar exceeded our most optimistic 
hopes. For our first attempt — with the record and the experience gained — we 
have plans to make this an annual Fund Raising event. 



"Sincere thanks should be given to the dedicated Committee, who planned 
and worked so diligently for months. 

". . . thanks to the many alumnae who sent contributions, and to the girls 
who served throughout the day. 

". . . thanks to Mr. James Stanley, Lasell's Director of Development, who 
arranged the complete and fine radio, TV and newspaper publicity, and who so 
willingly helped wherever he was needed.
